Long-Billed Curlew Decoy carved in 2017 for a couple of birders in Juneau, Alaska. The owners of this commemorative carving had the extreme good fortune of seeing and photographing a Long-Billed Curlew in Juneau, Alaska in 2014. Thanks to them, the species has since been listed on the Checklist of Alaska Birds (No. 502). http://www.ktoo.org/2014/05/11/juneau-birders-photograph-rare-long-billed-curlew/
Custom decoy box for second rig of Hawaiian stilts used for trapping and banding research of these endangered species in Hawaii.
Hawaiian Black-Necked Stilts roughed out for decoying this endangered bird into traps/nets. Dr. Paxton is an Avian Ecologist with the USGS Pacific Island Ecosystems Research Center in Hawaii National Park. He is doing research on the Hawaiian Stilt (a subspecies of the black necked stilt), and requested three decoys to assist in the capture of stilts to band, attach a transmitter to the birds, and release.
