Black Bellied Plover Decoy in the Hunters Striking Position

This outstanding rarity, a striking decoy having glass bead eyes was carved of white pine and unidentified hardwoods; three-piece construction, body and head joined at mid-neck for strength. The favorite delicacy of this species is crickets-hence the highly animated, striking position. As descended, historic surface and original bill. Ex Bob Thayer, AAAWT, to private collection.
