Meet the Red Knot - This chunky shorebird is unmistakable in spring, when it wears robin-red on its chest. It nests in the far north, mostly well above the Arctic Circle (the first known nest was discovered during Admiral Peary's expedition to the North Pole in 1909); its winter range includes shorelines around the world and can be seen on the east coast of the US. Where it is common, the Red Knot may roost in very densely packed flocks, standing shoulder to shoulder on the sand.
Our folk art Red Knot is made from recycled papers, handmade mulberry papers, hand painted and sits on a beautiful piece of Maine Coast Driftwood with an oyster shell from the nearby Popham beach! Dimension of this piece are 9 inches tall, 12 inches wide and 6 inches deep.
