    No taxidermy on my workbench today. Just some beards and spurs that are all I could salvage after something got into my turkieys last night and wiped out most of my breeders and almost half of my youngsters.
    This area is going to be a war zone for the next few days, I suspect.

    Sorry to hear about your loss Nancy. We recently had a dog attack here, and I lost 20 chickens. I thought my pens were secure, but I guess not good enough. Some of the chickens were my pets, over 4 years old. Some were breeders that I hatched myself, from shipped eggs. They were all very special, as I'm sure your turkeys are to you. I hope you can find whatever animal is responsible for this.

    VERY cool Mike! Paint job on the lower bird is impressive. I am making a "toucrow" might need use these pics as a "reference". Are the tails longer on crows than toucans? Look to be. Nancy and Wa, Raising birds is enjoyable until the day the flock has an "intruder" I think we all experience it at some time SUCKS!, It is amazing how focused you get to "catch the Bas**** that kills your birds. Here's a pic of my "intruder" almost a year ago to the day. No problems since! LOL

    I haven't caught mine yet, but I did spend quite a bit of time yesterday getting acquainted with the .22 rifle that I have owned for, oh ... about 30 years or more. (inherited) I think I fired it ONCE back in the 70s, just to see if it worked. Anyway, 'turns out that that a Remington 581 is pretty close to being a collectible nowadays. LOL! I guess that's what happens when you get old and keep the same stuff you've always had. Oh well, as long as it shoots I don't care.

    Redhead with a long and narrow bill, and a sloped forehead, although you can't tell with the puffy doo.
