This is a rare Sora Rail shorebird decoy by well-known carver Steve Morey (deceased) from Tuckerton, NJ. This shorebird was carved in 1990s and has great form and paint, including hand carved stand / base.
It is branded with a stylized "M" for Morey on the bottom near the stick hole, as pictured. This little Sora Rail is over 7" long from tail to head and is over 6" high with the stand. Really nice patina and paint with terrific form = head is low & forward as if this shorebird is looking down searching for food. Nicely carved wings and tips = see pictures.Nice piece to add to any collection of New Jersey decoys or shorebirds. See my other auctions for more sporting collectibles.
