    I originally did a Golden eagle in this pose and right after that this gentleman ordered his Red tail to be done the same way,, ofcourse with a little bit of wing position change.
    Cheers
    Overall , it was ok,, he had alot of old frayed feathers.

    Great hawk Falco, very lifelike. Did you notice your customer with the two owls and the white mink posted them on this forum as well because he's so happy with your work?

    I'm no expert, but your birds look great to me Feather. Wish we could do those here.
     
  8. Two mounts I recently completed during a training course offered by Eugene Streekstra, aka Wingman!

    If you are looking for a way to increase the quality or speed of your bird work, I would HIGHLY recommend considering a training course from Wingman. The techniques and procedures he incorporated in the 5-day course were AMAZING!! He didn’t just apply a standard training template, he developed a training plan customized to meet my personal needs.

    Thanks Wingman for an awesome week of training. I would do over in a heartbeat! Jeff.

    Hate the bird but decided to post it since it's the first one I've finished in two years. I called my brother after skinning it out and told him it wasn't worth mounting (one wing broken, the other shattered, broken leg), but he really wanted it done and talked me into doing it for him. Can't blame it all on the shoddy specimen...lot of errors made on my part.
     
  13. Great mounts everyone! Want to quick share this beautiful turkey mount done by Chris Dischler of Nature's Own Taxidermy out of Spring Green WI. Chris used our Walnut Hollow Oak Two Tier Bases in this competition mount. Chris was awarded a First Place Blue in the Masters Division and the NWTF Best Turkey Award at the 2012 Wisconsin Show. I'm fired up to go Turkey hunting, just need the weather to straighten out!!

    Feather, indeed there are lot of wonderful projects displayed here. But I gotta say, this Osprey somehow strikes me as one of my favorites. GREAT job. I cannot tell from the angle, but with the "wet head" so well done on the bird, a wet fish and foot would be neat too.

    Feather - definately a beautiful job on the Osprey - if you notice on the edge of each feather it comes to a point and had a tiny "frey" this is because its a juvenile bird - those tips are were the down breaks off the shaft as the mature feathers first grow in - this is a bird just out of the nest and flying - once it molts into its second set of feathers the feathers will have a more rounded edge and will lose that buff colored tip -

    great mount
