This decoy is carved from basswood in two pieces….. head , and body. This little guy is known for his swiftness in flight and his irredescent colors that stand out on his head. The colors are just beautiful when lit up by the suns’ rays. He measures about 10” or so long x about 6” high. Has glass eyes.
