These mobiles are perfectly balanced for the most graceful movement.  Just pull and release the bottom string and watch them fly. Each is constructed of medium-density fiberboard, hand-painted, and decorated with dyed tagua nuts.  These whimsical flyers are handmade by a family-run business that employs single moms and internally displaced Afro-Colombians.  

A portion of each sale goes directly back to indigenous refugees in Colombia

Wingspan: 23n. 

Some minor assembly required.  The tail comes as a separate piece that slides in, perpendicular to the body.  

The scissor-tailed flycatcher, also known as the Texas bird-of-paradise and swallow-tailed flycatcher, is a long-tailed bird of the genus Tyrannus, whose members are collectively referred to as kingbirds. This handmade mobile goes well in a family room, den, or covered porch. Perfect for collectors, graduation gifts, mother's day, or birthday gifts.
