    Shorebird "decoys" are popular on the East Coast. Sandpipers, Curlews, Dunlins etc.
    Simple carvings with dowel "legs". Often painted but I prefer them just natural wood.
    Here are two generic shorebirds in alder, mahogany, and yew woods. DSC03310.jpeg DSC03308.jpeg

    In the Midwest those are called "Confidence Decoys"! ;) Those are great, though, I love the simple lines.
