Hanging Honker

This ever-popular Canada goose is in flight. Spectacular life size of 39 inches x 9 inches with 15-inch wings spreading 14 inches wide angled off its contoured body. A flock of three hung at different levels is breathtaking!

Our Guild is driven to replacing every Pepto Bismol pink Flamingo in America with our stately, majestic herons. They are life-sized at 36 inches diagonally from beak to tail, 9 inches wide, and stand 44 inches above ground. Sculpt and trimmed so life-like, little fish and frogs flee at their sight!

  • Spectacular for docks, poolside and pond landscaping.

Use the heron indoors by inserting its pipe legs into our 12 x 12 x 9 high triangular display base made of natural cedar with painted marsh grass. Indoor heron uses: plants, towels for bath or sauna; bath soaps, etc.
