    ...and a Tundra Swan. Seems like I jump from the smallest birds to the largest birds sometimes. :p The other day I went from mounting a cockatiel to putting together a turkey. Quite a change as far as size goes, but you do what you need to in order to get birds out the door! I'm sure a lot of people here can relate! :)

    Thank you guys, perhaps it was the most difficult bird to this year (after the Cuckoo) Babak, if I could send you some how my woodcock, you would be able to practice a lot on them. Accumulated a lot of them, but they do not have time to create one. Woodcock is one of my favorite birds, I love spring hunt for him. But for your first woodcock is simply an excellent result, knowing its weak and thin skin.
    WCTaxidermy мandarin cool, I dream to work with this bird ever,brazosboyt -always happy to look at your work, just respect ,robolson -no words, fantastic job!
    here are a few of my pintail, assembled for today

    Babak, if I saw that woodcock before you saved it, I would've thought it was trash. Great job! Alyssa, have you been taking lessons from Wolfgang? Ya'll's Mandarins are awesome. Brazoboyt, very dynamic poses on the tree ducks. Matt, your birds are always so smooth and clean. Do you use a lot of caulk? Rustax, I like the head/neck junctions on the sprigtails. And the hawk head, holy cow.
    Roger, all my bird mounts have your eyes in them. Thank you so much for making some of the best species specific acrylic eyes in the business. Speaking as a waterfowl guy, if I had to pick a favorite, it would have to be the male Canvasback eyes. Dead on color and an authentic gold circle of correlation between the pupil and iris.
    Jeff, I carved the kingfisher and starling, but the woodcocks were wire-framed.

    great work guys,
    Adam, I know this little fatty guys but they are so nice, that it is worth the work,
    Sammy, fantastic pintails, I wonder that you are a allrounder without any weaknesses,
    and ludvik, I love your work on both of the grouse, great pose and clean work,
