    Nice Grouse Park,
    I finally got my first white wing two seasons ago after several attempts. They are huge birds! I can't wait to get mine in the trophyroom :)

    Nice work Dan!

    Nebs - if you are waiting to get that whitewing back from Jeff we all know it will be WELL worth the wait. His work is always inspiring. They are big divers aren't they..

    Speaking of big birds... I finally got this project done... October swan from Montana... Originally heavily mineral stained, full of pin feathers, just all sorts of fun! hahaha... Had a few beers after this was done. It almost felt like I was working construction all day...

    Hey Pat, those swanscame out great but you can keep 'em....too much bird for me. ;) Good talking shop with you the other day and thanks for the info. Here is my upcoming project and I am very excited. I am down to my last few batches of waterfowl for the year so now I can start playing with toucans parrots and peacocks.

    I will be rebuilding these tails next week.....

    Does anyone have any suggestions??? Brian (Wolfgang)? Eugene?? I have ideas but not certain what I am going to do yet. ANy help would be appreciated.

    I have been experimenting with some new skinning techniques. makes for a quick sew!
