  • Canadian Kestrel...???

    Well , I have just finished another carving that has been laying around the shop half finished for a few years. This is the second of many that I made up my mind to get completed this year. Sort of a New Year's resolution.
    I call it a Canadian Kestrel, just so no one will be able to see how poorly it is painted.

      Bob,
      As I told you over coffee that is a great carving and by the way he is too modest it is very well painted. What impressed me about the carving is that Bob had carved the feet into the base it really is very well done. Great job my friend as are all of your carvings.

        That's a nice looking bird. Nothing wrong with the paint job that I can see, quite well done in fact. Keep up the good work.

            The kestrel looks just right! Nice carving and painting.

            I had to do some research into finding the difference between the "Canadian Kestrel" and the common "North American Kestrel".

            There is NO noticable physical difference in appearance and the only way the ornithologists tell the two apart is by listening to their cry.

            The North American kestrel sounds a shrill "screeee, screeee, screee"

            The Canadian Kestrel sounds a similar but slightly different "screee-ey, screee-ey, screee-ey"

                        I thought the Canadian version went " A my little Shereee!" LOL

                            Mayhap the bird - either one - is hollering for more screech?

                            Nice work. I just googled for kestrel pix, and I don't see all that much difference.

                              The kestrel looks great, Bob! I really like the way you've incorporated the bird onto the base.
