Spoon Bill Bird 16.4"H
Is it a flamingo??? No it is a Spoon Bill Bird by Hansa. This unusual looking bird sports a long flat wide bill used to find food in the mud flats. Covered with wonderful pink soft plush with details on his legs, neck and body that have been hand painted or airbrushed. So realistic you will take a second glance when you come across this strange but beautiful bird. Add to your bird collection or use as an accent in the living room. The animals are hand sewn “inside out”, resulting in the minimization of seams. This development of an exceptional internal stitching method allows the Hansa artisans create effects like muscle tone and “features” unique to each creature.
Gorgeous at a distance and bizarre up close is the Roseate Spoonbill. Locally common in coastal Florida, Texas, and southwest Louisiana, they are usually in small flocks, often associating with other waders. Spoonbills feed in shallow waters, walking forward slowly while they swing their heads from side to side, sifting the muck with their wide flat bills.
