Taxidermy Rook (Corvus frugilegus) Bird on embellished stone base for sale
New, Taxidermy Rook (juvenile) on solid stone base
This handsome specimen is a fine example of a Rook (Corvus frugilegus). Some may find the bare skin on their face resembling a plague doctor, ‘unsightly’, making these corvids rather overlooked.
However, their electric blue and purple plumage and their status in folklore, makes them one of the most attractive in my opinion.
This particular specimen is in juvenile plumage, which means he has not yet lost the facial feathers that give him the distinctive, bare-faced ‘rook look’ and perhaps looks more like his carrion crow cousin.
Mounted on to a solid stone base, embellished with antique brass.
