Hand-Carved Wooden Bird

BALTIMORE ORIOLE 🐦

This Baltimore Oriole is one of many uniquely made wooden birds
by Grandad Focht 
All of his other hand-carved birds have been sold






To swing: move or cause to move back and forth or from side to side while suspended

Notice the rubber tire swing,
just in case the bird decides to move back and forth!!!


  

One of the most brilliantly colored songbirds in the east, flaming orange and black, sharing the heraldic colors of the coat of arms of 17th-century Lord Baltimore. Widespread east of the Great Plains, Baltimore Orioles are often very common in open woods and groves in summer. Their bag-shaped hanging nests, artfully woven of plant fibers, are familiar sights in the shade trees in towns. This bird was formerly considered to belong to the same species as the western Bullock's Oriole, under the combined name of Northern Oriole.
