    Mallard (female). The bird was a bit rotten. Tried to save - how was this possible.

    i seem to always love a "challange" anyway, my old taxidermy friend gave me this skin that we think has been in the freezer for 20-35 year(salted skin) anyway he gave it to me and asked if i could mount it, anyway i got a good friend of mine to send me a cast

    common shelduck, skinned on the back and the head was broken off,

    so this is how the skin looks, and the belly and under the wings are covered in blood
