  4. Brooke,

    I have to say your work is about as clean as it can get. Great job on the birds

    My first dead bird mount. I used a wrapped body. Not really a fan of these but...it belongs to one of the assistant principals at my school. Actually his kid, the boys first bird. He was actually planning to mount it himself but never got around to it. I tried to tell him he would be better off taking it to a real taxidermist because it was his child's first but he says he has seen my work and it is good. IMG_2845.JPG

    I just noticed something Brooke! That picture that is on the computer monitor is of your dead mount birds. I was using it as a reference for how I set this bird. I am glad you post photos of your birds. Thanks!
