Product information


On top of the trunk is the blue-hooded moth. The blue-hooded moth is around 45 cm long, measured from the beak point to the end of the extended tail feathers. The tail pins are the first part practically beardless and have a round "flag" at the end. These flutter back and forth like the pendulum of a clock when the bird sits on a branch, hence the Costerican nickname clock bird.

Originally, blue-cap moths are shy forest birds, living in the lower layer of dense forests in Central and South America. Their strong, short legs are particularly useful when jumping from branch to branch, on the ground they hark like sparrows. Nowadays they also occur in villages and towns, in some regions even in large numbers. They even nest in barns and attics.

Yellow-legged woodpecker

The bottom bird on the branch is the yellow-billed woodpecker. The yellow-browed woodpecker ( Melanerpes cruentatus ) is a bird of the Picidae family. The yellow-billed woodpecker is often seen in the dead trees around cost plots and is very common in Suriname.

What is the metalbird made of?

This bird silhouette is made of corten steel which gets a nice rusty layer due to the weather influences. Wind, rain, snow; he just gets better! This silhouette is somewhat larger than the other silhouettes: 40 centimeters high and 30 centimeters wide.
