    thank you my friends for companion me in BOTW #12 ,some really great mounts displayed from ya all , but it finished .well ,my second hosting week started now, I hope you liked my first .i am not a dedicated taxidermist or even a part time pro ,just a student and hobbyist .although I've never got any money of this way and it cost me a lot practicing my love art in Iran, I spend large percentage of my short leisure time to learn anatomy, new methods, tips of bird taxidermy and this causes people around me can't understand me and objecting !anyhow, I have no new bird yet, because it's 5 am and i wake up to start this thread and i will right back to bed again!!! Yeah, crazy!!!No way, keep coming great pics of your mounts!!! :D

    Beautiful stuff, Falco. Love that top photo of the osprey! It looks like a National Geographic shot of a live bird! That hoot owl ain't too shabby either!

    Nice scouters Rick,i saw them before in your FB page and i stated how much those are beautiful,outstanding mounts!

    Jeremy ,i love your mounts and you know i follow up your works daily !! honestly ,that valley quail is my favorite between your mounts ,u no i am uplander!
    my friend,Jeremy,i am in trouble with ignorant people (plus politics,restricted boarders,law limitation,economy,... ),although i don't care as much as i can!I live happily in a very nice family,parents are amazing and they are partial of my hobby ,i mean taxidermy,and they are supporting mentally and encouraging me,so no need to any body else here ,i will keep my way :) ! these days i am busy with molding & casting bird's head,i made couple of heads by your method and Igor's guidelines.

    Igor, you're truly a great master for me,speechless your mounts are # 1,nice roller

    Very cool looking birds everyone!
    that osprey is the best of it's kind that I've ever seen :eek:
    due to my giant headache a few days ago, i have no new birds, so i post some of my old work for you Babak ;D
    first picture is of my very first try at two mandarin ducks, they needed a new, smaller base later (that's the second photo) and my first and hopefully last swan breast mount ;D

    Thanks everyone,,, but these pictures have been posted before, I thought it should be repetitive ...
    Babak,, thanks for your comments,, but im not that young as you think ;)
    Jeremy,, Taxidermy is your part time thing,, how do you manage to have so many birds not only done ever time, but also done beautifully.
    Yeah that Chukar cover, brings the old days back babak,, I used to go after them in Damavand.
  19. You all are putting up some neat mounts!!

    Late yesterday I was using BOTW and Falco's Osprey to confirm what I was watching through binos. I see alot of Red Tailed Hawks from the house but the bird I was glassing was definitely not a match. It was perched above my pond below the house and it dove to the pond, hit the water like a ton of bricks, sat floating for a couple seconds with its wings flat out and then took flight with a bluegill in its clutches. I think it may have honestly been my first sighting of an Osprey, at least that I recall, and it was really cool to see it in action. It then flew up into a giant Bur Oak and munched away on its prize.

    Igor - I sent ya an email to see if by chance you can email me a HI RES image of that colorful bird mount. :)

    Hi friends from middle east :) ! i don't know why all bird taxidermy topics are very slow this week !! hunting season has finished but your fridges must be full of birds waiting for mounting !! my fridge ran out of birds ,and i have just few doves and domestic birds for mounting !!i have to wait for the next hunting season!! so i can't do any new bird for BOTW,with empty fridge and long days with my new job,but i expect y'all to keep great job ! your works are a great school for me and probably for most of us,great idea,nice poses, ...a real school !!

    i want to invite some great taxidermists to take part in this week's bird show here in taxidermy.net ,maybe some busy guys.

    here is the best place to say my deep appreciation of some great taxidermists and very great guys who spent hours to teach me bird taxidermy,thank you for spending your priceless time for teaching me,sorry i can't call all of your names here ,honestly i sorted bunch of names for myself to say the names but i saw the list is endless!! ,and sorry again i wasn't good and talented person to show my teachers competency , i sincerely wish the bests for you. keep good job !! :)
