    WOW, nice work everyone. Love the pheasants, the ducks and the black grouse hen.
    From me just a old piece that I did a new base for (the third on this piece, I can't decide what I like best).

    Can somebody tell me what species they are, I bought them as breeding pair and don't think it was correct. I think of male Virginia quail and a male quail of another species? Maybe somebody can help. :)

    Greetings, Karin

    I'm sorry that I haven't been able to participate as much as I'd like but as always - a huge fan and daily observer - some wonderful pieces as always on all levels. This was a particularly special bird I got to work on - originally a museum study skin for several decades - then sent to me to be re-mounted - scary as you never know the outcome when you start to rehydrate skins that old - really fascinating species - nicknamed the "calf bird" because of the sound it makes it called a Capuchinbird - would have been nice if I had a little more of the original skull left to work with OY !!

    Rainer- your grouse looks super. well groomed and nice pose too
    Karin- good looking quail and the base looks really great also.
    Jeff- nice work. im still jealous of all the "cool" birds you get to work on. a real challenge for sure.

    Birdstuffer, I have never been a big fan of dead mounts, but you are going to convert me yet, that pair of geese is very nice to look at.
