    Just did one of these up for the first time, their body might not be the most colorful thing ever, but their wings make up for all of that! What struck me is that the speculum is so minute, and to have such a broad trailing edge is definetly unlike anything we have here.

    very nice mount Eric!

    I have a mottled duck in the freezer, it is captive raised, but one wing has a spec just like that.. unfortunately.. it's a pinioned bird, and I think it is the wing that is pinioned.

    Extraordinary problems require extraordinary solutions!
    You know me ... I would probably sew on two new wings with primary feathers, complete with bones, severed then re-joined right at the wrist joint.
    But then ... I'm probably crazy.
