SWAN LAKE PINTAIL
18.5" L x 6.5" W x 9.75"H
Also known as a Sprig, Sprigtail, Spike, or a Spike tail, the Pintail is a medium size dabbling duck that can be easily distinguished from the other dabblers due to its long slender profile, elegant neck, and of course their pointed tail. Male pintails have a long thin tail feather that can measure as great as 4 inches, and the females also have a distinct tail that only measures about a quarter of the males. This slim tail feather narrows down to a sharp point and takes credit for where this beautiful waterfowl gets its name. Pintails are usually found gliding through marshes, ponds, lakes, and rivers.
Loon Lake Decoy Company’s detailed sculpture “Swan Lake Pintail” captures this remarkable puddle duck with its definite features including the famous long pintail. Loon Lake Decoy Company makes this elongated delicate tail removable, and if it is damaged or lost it is easily replaced at no additional charge.
