Offered is a beautiful mounted common kingfisher (Alcedo atthis). As can be seen, the colours are still really bright and the bird is in a beautiful condition. The bird stems from an old German school collection, and I was told it stems from the 1920s. This makes it even more interesting, considering the good condition the bird is still in. It has been preserved really well in its original display case which can be hung on the wall. The bird really looks and feels like it was mounted yesterday.
The photos were taken in natural daylight and show the true colors of this magnificent bird. Here in the Netherlands we call these birds, 'the blue flash', because often when you see them, which on its own is rare, you can only see a fast blue flash moving across the water surface.
The dimensions of the wooden display case are 27 x 23 x 12 cm.
The bird will be shipped well packed, and if the buyer wants, it can be shipped insured.
IT WILL ONLY BE SHIPPED WITHIN THE EU
