It feeds on small rodents, birds, eggs, insects and fruit, and can even be encouraged to visit birdtables laden with peanuts and raisins. Mostly chestnut-brown in colour, the pine marten has a characteristic pale yellow ‘bib’ on its chin and throat. It has a long, bushy tail.
This painted is 8×10 inch on wood board, with a low sheen varnish and comes wrapped in cellophane for protection.
