    hop you're right, unfortunately, these birds often die in our high-voltage lines. Moreover, any birds killed, electricity does not choose his victim. I do not know how to solve this problem in European countries and in the United States, but in our country, are just beginning to take action.

    Hi Rustax, I noticed you used a casted skull for this eagle. Did you or your customer want to save its skull separately, or was the bill of this bird broken so you needed to replace it?
    Personally I'm not a taxidermist but a bonehead: I prepare skulls and build skeletons. Bless the person who invented casted bird heads, as I have quite a few rare bird skulls in my collection that otherwise would have been stuck in skin mounts. ;)

    Fantastic work everybody,
    Evgeniy, I cannot find the real words for your eagle, it is fantastic, love to see it with the done hare,
    hop, that azur winged magpie is a bird, I ever wanted to get for my collection and if it would come out good as yours, it would be great,
    Sprigpig, well done, clean and nice bluewing, love it,
    Spencer, love the mallard, too
    Jay, the Canadian is in front but the sage in the background looks really good to me and
    fowlweatherfowler, if this is the first bird after class, I wonder what we will see in the future,

    greatings, Rainer
