Hi there Young hunter,
Most taxidermist do not tan birds. A dry preservative is the most used method. The main thing is to skin and thoroughly flesh it. Wash the skin and degrease it and rub a dry preservative on the skin side before putting it on the form.
Alex do what Todd said and rub Borax in to the skin after you have removed all the fat and flesh from the skin then tack it out on a pice off wood to dry
hope this helps
