    Hi all, I was asked to host BOTW for the next 2 weeks but I'm posting now to get a jump a day early because I will be unavailable to post it tommorrow due to being gone.

    My name is Jeremy and I live here in beautiful North Eastern Oregon state right at the base of the Blue Mountains. I'm 42 y/o and have a awesome family with a beautiful wife that I have been married to for 22 years and 3 great girls all ranging from 9 to 16 y/o.

    I have worked as a FF/Paramedic for the City of Pendleton for over 15 years and have been involved in the Fire/EMS industry for over 22 years, i worked for several years in Portland Oregon as a Medic prior to getting hired here in Pendleton.

    I have done bird and reptile taxidermy for over 12 years... with the first years as just a hobbyist.... but over several years it has developed into a very busy part time profession. Half of my work is wholesale for other taxidermist around the nation and the rest is retail.

    So enough about me, lets see some birds folks.... ill start with a whole group of turkeys and some recent and older pictures and yes i better throw a snake in there....LOL

    Beautiful work Jeremy. I enjoy my Pendleton on the rocks ha ha. I have some family near there. Hopefully I'll be up that way for an archery elk and deer hunt this August. Who's heads do you use on your turkeys?

    hey, what a great start of BOTW#10
    Jeremy, thanks for hosting and sharing such great mounts of all categories with us
    Boxie, nice swimming redhead and
    Sea Duck, your king is great, one of my favourite ducks
    RedTx, great mounts full of action and
    brazosboyt your blue ross is great
    Karin, I know, that hawfinches are not easy to do and when they loose such a lot of feathers, I believe that it is much more difficult to get them smooth and clean
    Cherie, those redheads are absolutely stunning, would like to get this reeds in Germany,

    Karin.... ive only done House Sparrows and Starlings... those itty bitty birds are tough...cant imagine doing them with feather loss...well done!!

    Sea Duck.... incredible mount....I have never got to do one yet.

    Cheri.... AWESOME Redheads ...LOVE IT!!! Ive used Kellys reeds several times. Here is a Swan on his reeds...I asked him to beef them up for me on this project.
