Rig of 5 Miniature Shore Bird Decoys in Original Paint w/ Birch Stands

A wonderful mid-20th Century rig of 5 Shorebirds (Yellowlegs? Plovers? Rails?? Sorry, I never learned to tell my shorebirds apart and any help lookers can provide would be greatly appreciated!) in original paint. The birds are mounted on sections of birch logs and display wonderfully together (birds are mounted on wooden rods which are inserted into the birch; both birds and rods are removable). Paint patterns are similar although 2 have lighter colored chests. Size is also about the same, with each bird measuring about 5 ½" from the tip of the beak to the tail and about 2" tall. (length of the rods and thickness of the birch logs varies) All are in very fine condition with virtually 100% paint and no splits, cracks, breaks, etc. Minor dinging on the tip of one bill and a minor professional repair to another bill, where it connects with the head (see photo). A really great grouping of miniatures.
