A really neat Dipper (Koskikara in Finnish) from year 1999-2004 in its original Box. Designed by famous professor Oiva Toikka.
The Dipper is a bird that we seldom have had for sale. It is described on page 58 in the book "Birds by Toikka" and on page 89 in the book "In Oiva's Wonderland".
Just as its model in real life, the white-throuted dipper, also this one has a white breast. The beak is black, the head is dark, but when this bird got the opportunity to come out in nature we revealed that in bright sunshine the head is clearly dark lilac in this light (see pictures). The inside of the body has a browish tone when transiluminated and looks as if it was covered with greyblack dust, giving the bird a black appearance. The tail is clear.
