Another Saturday, another rug.
Yowsers! looks like my tree duck
Looks about like the typical MN bird Brooke, except it has less holes or chew marks.
Needless to say...I talked him out of mounting that one.
museum remount... before and after... was mounted with a wire framework stuffed with newspaper and plastic doll eyes
Which one is the remount?.....
JK LOL great save!
Done with customers birds for the year. Now I get to work on gifted birds for the showroom. Here's a Chiloe Wigeon that was gifted to me from a friend's aviary.
Gorgeous, as always.
A jumping quacker this afternoon for me
Is that a pillow with your cot.
Nothing beats a nap in the middle of a work day. Ha
Dan, that's poly fill on my table, but I think you know that. I only ever nap when I'm leaning against a tree typically in April, turkey season but sometimes in the fall.
Here are a few birds i finished up recently. Some turned out okay, others not. I am getting better very slowly. The wood duck swimming is a wreck i know. Almost all of his side pocket bar feathers came out due to pins and I ended up trying to transplant bar feathers from previous birds into his pocket. Hopefully this coming season I will be able to get a few nicer woodies to practice on and can get better on standing mounts. Amazing work from everyone and hope everyone has a great week.
Chris, those aren't bad at all. That woody is just like the typical one here, very few ever come in with fully developed side bars. So you do what you have to.
