This carving is one of McNair’s first Yellowlegs carved 1975-6. Carved in a style reminiscent of the old Capt. Andrews birds of Smith Island, VA. Solid cedar construction with tack eyes, raised primaries and hardwood bill splined through the head. Carved in a running pose with a nice old patina. Mark’s earliest incised “MSM” signature on the bottom.
