    Nice falcons and Rough-legged buzzard, they seem to be in perfect condition!

    the falcons are in good condition, but the buzzard is full of pinfeathers and the skull is badly brocken, because he flew in a car :'(
    the scottish peregrine and the gyr-peregrine mix are for me, so they will be mounted way later.

    my first bird, never seen this done before, just read a book and a professional took a look at my skinning and gave me a few pointers, it looks like shit but i didnt expect much from the first bird, still needs better grooming and fixing the eyes :)

    A couple of Dead Mount Mallards. One more to add hanging and it will be completed. I'll add the accessories after, duck calls, empty shell boxes..

    Oskare, why use such ENORMOUS ROPE around the bird? you can't check the feathers at all.

  18. Thanks! I'm going to do it backwards now that I actually have some time to post. Here is the base and the earlier stages, I promise I did it in the right order lol ;D
    BTW I used Wolfgang's dorsal incision and it worked GREAT! I really did love doing it that way and things really fell together nicely.
