The top will be a hawk. You can see where the grip will be. I am not sure what I will add between the hawk and the top of the grip. I am thinking I may try and have the hawk gripping a fish.

Sorry the picture is not better.

Good work so far. Around here, I've only seen hawks gripping other birds... Well, pieces of birds. And mice, chipmunks, maybe a squirrel. I did have a juvenile stoop on me once, but it veered off when it got close enough to see I was a wee bit to big to carry off.

A osprey would make a good subject they oftern take salmon from rivers.

already got the drawings for one done ,but carving directly onto the stick seems challenging

I have also ben swooped on by barn owls when i got to close to there nest ,bit of a suprise never saw them until i heard the wind from the beating of there wings .

It is a cedar stick Mark. I having planned a hawk I did not leave room for the longer beak of a osprey or eagle. Hawks beak has a deeper curve and shorter. I will see where I am when I finish the head.
