This subcategory contains member-submitted reference photographs of live birds to aid in avian taxidermy. In order to maximize the usefulness of these photos, we ask that you carefully follow the topic naming directions so that people will be able to find photos they are looking for. If a topic is named incorrectly, we reserve the right to re-name it to fit the format of this category. When submitting a photo, make sure the Subject of the topic is the species name, so it will be easy to locate by using the Alphabetical topic function. Before submitting a reference photo, please see if a topic already exists for the species of the photo you wish to submit, and add your photos as a reply to that topic. This way, all of the photos for a species will stay together, and be easy to use. Please limit each topic to only ONE species. Do not place different species in the same thread. We ask that photos submitted are of live specimens only. Please do not post any photos of taxidermy work. Photos of taxidermy can be posted in the Bird taxidermy category. Make sure that you do not post a copyrighted photo without the consent of the copyright holder. Copyrighted photos placed in this category without permission will be removed. Use the "Report to moderator" link in any post to report any photos submitted without proper permission. It is our hope that this area will become a popular and beneficial tool for the sharing of reference photos to improve the art of taxidermy.
