    Hye there,

    I like to make a new topic on here , but it ll be for any birds except Duck and Geese , and yes i know that most of you in the USA can not mount birds like Owls and Songbird's and yets it is a shame :'( , so do not feel bad about me trying to get this one of the ground, it is just some thing else no more no Les, and no offend to any water fowl TAXIDEMIST



    So please let me know if we can do this k

    THANKS FOR ALL THE INPUT , SO TELL ME WHAT YOU THINK

    posted this back in the summer on another thread but what the heck, probably the only great horned owl I will ever do so here it is. I sure didn't do it justice just gave it my best. Had fun doing it though for a change!

    I am no owl expert by any means, It think you did a great job. It definitely looks like an owl :)

    Lizardfeathers Thank you for teaching me through your works...

    Bowerbird, that Major Mitchell cockatoo is beautiful!!! Sounds like a challenge to keep it clean throughout the mounting process so you don't have to wash it...

    LOL, tell us how it is to do a large bird like that, does a flamingo have any special oddities to have to work with? How did you do the legs? Beak? What was it like to flesh out? De fat?

    All of you guys and gals do some really fantastic bird work. So many of our members look up to you all. I know we are all competitive, and its good to see that "edge" but I just make sure we dont slip up. Thanks everyone for all the great pics, beginners and experts alike!
