    I also posted this in the workbench thread, But I think it's suited for BOTW as well. PASSENGER PIGEON!!! I got a call from a client a few weeks ago who is a collector of rare and vintage taxidermy pieces. He had just acquired a mount of an extinct passenger pigeon and wanted to know if I could clean it up and restore it. I told him no guarantees, but I would give it a try. He's pleased with it and I am as well. It wasn't the greatest mount to begin with, but it looks a little bit better now that it's cleaned up and on a nice base.

    Nice little bird snow, you did a fantastic job with the restauration,
    Adam, well done, I think, I would not take such a rare bird to work with.
    And here is my entry for this week, a chiloe wigeon, from Germany,

    Not me, but my hunting buddy and he gifted it to me, because he knows, that I am duck-crazy.
    I dont know why a duck has not the place as a trophy in Germany than in other countries, that people give such one in a lifetime bird away,

    Perhaps the old sugar and toothpaste mixed together as a scrub will do the trick Jeroen. :)

    Nice birds this week. I know how you feel Snowhare, or should I say smell! Did two brant and a razorbills Sat. And I stil smell that fat! Sea ducks seem to be the worst . Speaking of which, that's a very nice job on the Eider.
