Common Tern Decoy

$70.00

Product Description

The decoys in the photo at the top of the page were made for a restoration project in an industrial area in Western Canada.

They are lifesize Common Terns, so measure about 16" overall, and are carved of pine. The photo below was taken earlier in the week when only a portion of that order had been completed.

The price noted above is for a single decoy and is negotiable for large orders.

Here's a closer look at a finished Common Tern. These are solid-bodied, "nesting" birds that are destined to be fastened to rafts.

 

Fast forward to April 2 and the email with the subject line Common tern rafts with decoy !  - Visdiefvlotjes met lokvogels !

The email was from Belgium, and they had promised photos of their just arrived Common Tern decoys once they were installed on the rafts. Have a look...

 Just thought you'd like to see our decoys on the job, so to speak.

On June 24th we received an update and photos from this very same installation.
We were well aware that our decoys are really good at attracting terns, but we had no idea
that the terns themselves would employ them for babysitting duty.
Have a look...

What's more, apparently he (or she) did a pretty good job of it as evidenced by these little guys...

FYI, we do Sandwich Terns , Forster's Terns, Sooty Terns, Least Terns, and Arctic Terns as well.
