    Thanks Eugene! a crows tail is slightly longer then some species but not by that much. Tony Finazzo custom molded all my heads for me and has a very good selection now. He has several sizes of Keelbill, swansons, toco, and Redbill.

    Is that ithe animal in your avatar, Snowhare?
    Do they have another name? I can't find any mention of them online and they are really pretty.

    edit:
    Oh ... oops. Never mind.
    I Googled the Latin name that was written on the paper in your photo.
    'Found em!

    You guys have been busy! There are some GOOOOD looking mounts in this thread!
    Meanwhile, I've been doing boring stuff, besides trying to catch whatever massacred most of my turkeys. No luck so far, but at least the one that was very badly injured seems to be recovering. It's good, because all but one of my foundation toms are gone now, and this youngster may be a very busy boy next year. He's still a jake, and was just beginning to grow his first adult tail. He has to start over again, but I found part of his first attempt and thought it might make an interesing photo. When I talk about my strain of pencilled turkeys, this is where they get their name:

    They were on my workbench right before I took the photo - honest!

    This is the guy with the mutation that started the whole thing. He was 8 years old and still going strong until whatever it was killed him. [​IMG]
    They don't all look exactly like him, but they all have solid primaries. That trait seems to be related to the pattern, as do the golden wing coverts.

    Beautiful bird, The tail is gorgeous. To bad he's no more .Seems to me it would take a pretty good size "critter" to kill a bird that size?

    wingman I thought so too but a coon with ''night vision'' can devestate a turkey pen ,all they have to do is scare them off the roost onto the ground the bird will huddle in a corner and it's over ,lost 5 in one spring ,good work on the merganser s ,Nancy that is more beautiful than a royal palm and they are quite a bird
