    This mount was done by RusTax and I had saw it in an old BOTW wondering what the one bird was that was being attacked by the Gyrfalcon. Do any of you guys know what kind of bird it it? Just wondering because the mount looked amazing.

    I remember back in grade school when the name of that bird was first announced.
    A third of the boys sat up straight and asked what did you say? It’s a Bustard. one of my friends agreed say that’s one huge ole Bustard!!
    Suddenly there were boys interested in ornithology.
