The sanderling is an unusual species for a shorebird decoy. This decoy was formerly in the William Mackey collection and bears his stamp. It appears to have its original bill and is lightly hit by shot.
Please look carefully at ALL photos of the decoys. We try very hard to describe accurately the physical appearance (including any blemishes) of the decoys we sell. Still, if you are dissatisfied with your purchase after you receive it, you may return it for a full refund (less fees if you paid by credit card) as long as the decoy is returned within two weeks in the same condition that it was in when shipped to you. You are responsible for shipping costs for returns.
