    That's how it goes. I was looking forward to it this year, but I have several customers birds to keep me busy until duck season, so its all good. Thank you for you post Brooke.

    I got in trouble for not painting my nictating membranes . I think he's back home cause of the quarentine.

    That stinks that the shows are getting cancelled this year. I was planning to go to the South Carolina show again this year. To my knowledge they haven't cancelled yet but I expect it to happen.


    Edit: 16 April 2020 - The South Carolina show has been cancelled.

    The best thing to do is post your freshly mounted bird in the What's on your workbench thread and ask for critiques. That way any advice you get, you may still be able to use it on your mount before it dries. This thread is for finished and dried mounts, so you wouldn't be able to change anything that the critiques give you. Looking forward to seeing your work.

    They are different. You have hen mallards, black ducks and mottled. They are all very similar but are separate species.

    Thanks so much , could you please elaborate the difference, or how could I tell ? Like what’s the main difference, I know the difference between hen mallards and blacks so what is the mottled difference so I can tell , is it something easy you can just look and see ?thanks again .

    You can tell easily by the wings. Mallard hens have white above and below their purple speculum, mottled ducks have white only below their speculum and black ducks have no white above or below speculum.
