Embroidered on 100% wool felt then stitched and sculpted into a free standing Bicknell's Thrush. Thread wrapped wire feet are posable for proper perching. Measuring 6 1/2" from beak to tip of tail and 4" tall, this thrush perches perfectly on a shelf or mantel.
This bird is an icon of the Northeastern Mountains. It is said that, "Perhaps no other bird so exemplifies the mountains of the northeast." Nesting in the dense, stunted forests of balsam fir across the high country, they are one of North America’s rarest migratory songbirds. It only nests on the highest peaks in the Northeast. Stopping to listen for its song at the four-mile mark and beyond on the Mt. Washington Auto Road may just give you a chance to check this bird off your life list.
