What an amazing collection.  Thanks for sharing.  And I just can't get over those closeups of the argus feathers.  They look so drab on the videos I have seen, and such an ugly head.

Francois -  no that is a bar pouched (but LOVE that one too) I'm refering to the huge great indian pied hornbill on the far right of the photo (the largest of the hornbills in the image with the huge casque)

I can't name the owner - but can post some pictures of a friends collection - if you look close there are some REALLY special jewels in this one - and this is just a small portion of his collection  also two pictures from a museum in japan -

Thanks Jbird, i love those photos. I just watched them with a cup of tea this morning.Really really nice.I am very happy with those photos, because i thought i was one of kind. If there are more collectors, show them too us.The great hornbill you want to see , is an very old one.IN the future i have to rebuild him.I think you can see what i mean.

Francois - boy that indian pied hornbill sure is exciting - however did you manage to aquire one - I had to completely re-create my red knobbed hornbill because I knew there was no way I'd ever get one otherwise - wouldn't really know where to start going about a pied re-build - beautiful bird.

Your parrots are extremely well done-   I will see if I can talk with my friend and put him in touch with you - he's VERY secretive

Love the inca tern - have some nice seabirds but do not have them mounted yet  (pelican, albatross, gulls, petrel)  someday - for now too busy with customers work  -

Did you notice the fruitcrow, cowbirds and wattled pheasant in the photo's ?  never seen them before in any other collection -

Jbird, what you have to do is contact breeders, In the Netherlands are a lot of breeders with tropical birds. And sooner or later birds die.I hope your friend is interesting in new birds. Maybe we can arrange something.
Mister Hop you can join us and show some photos of your birds, you have one of the best collection with europe birds.
