    A now new client of mine brought this bird in after waiting 3 years to get it back! He had it for about a week and called me to re-mount it. I hope I did it some justice!

    Who ever mounted it first really needs to take some classes and study anatomy. Great recovery Matt. It doesn't even seem like the same bird.

    Thanks for the comments guys. Brian!(LOL) I just realized I left the feet that my client dropped off on the base when I took that pic! They were not part of the base. I cut those spurs off and put them on a new set of feet for him. He wanted those spurs and the beard from the bird that is pictured.
     
  6. The first pic............ sneeky, sneeky. ;D

    Good job, Matt
