    Freshly mounted, lots of preening and touchups to start doing

    Don't care about clutter anymore. It's where I spend most of every day and evening. Brooke must be on vacation. She's always posting stuff before I get up in the morning.
    Here's a nice black. Pictures just do not do it justice.

    I'm wrapping up for this year. I'll still check in, and try and keep the threads up on the first of the month, but won't be mounting. Our season starts Oct 1. I did right at 100 this year. The Pintails won't make the tree cause we're going to deliver them and they'll all stay on mounting stands for the ride. I might get good outside pics of these Woodies to help advertise for RMM. This is a new branch they just came out with and will be available after the 15th.

    First hooded was a much smaller bird. Hardly any crest. Very hard to get a nice full look with it. The other is a cream puff.
