Good morning friends of bird-taxidermy all over the world. Like the past two years, again it is a great honor and pleasure for me to host BOTW and I am happy to start with the first in 2015. I hope, again we will show our mounts here to inspirate and give ideas to other ones and I also hope, that we will find a lot of new-comers here, who are not shy to show us their finished work. After my basement is dry now and I can work again, I will offer you a bird, that I have to place on an other basement in the evening and I hope till then I will find a lot of pictures here. I wish you all a happy new year 2015, a lot of luck and healthy and let us share our passion this year like we did in the past. So thank you all, Rainer.
