    Thanks guys! The Black Duck was a first of that species for me and he was freezer burned. They will go together on the wood that's on the wall.

    Thanks guys, had to sweat it. :D And now finally have solved the problem with a peacock. His tail is not very smooth, but the peacocks of the aviary is always with such deficiencies ...

    A question. How are you going to keep that peacock fan stiff? I like the way you propped them in a curved, natural shape to dry, but the longer feathers may succumb to gravity over time. Very nice mount, as usual.
