    He Taxos,

    The Barn Owl looks great to me , and i like to see them mounted in any way , cause they CRAP on my car , my fishing rods and the rest in my barn , so Stuff them all please

    And about the White Crested Loeri , you are right about , not seeing the red in the wings at all , maby just about 5 mm
    And i know , i mounted hundreds of them , in total 32 different sp ,

    GRT J

    HI Taxos.
    they are not huntable her. :(
    this was a road killed bird. my taxifriend had get in of a guy some had found it on the road and asked him if it was somthing he coud use :)
    so the only thing you need to do whit them here is registration it. so my taxi friend do it for me and i mount it into his shop. ;D
    and get it to my collection.

    another spectacular week - can't really choose a favorite - truly enjoyed them all. That eagle sure stands out. I was able to do some waterfowl this last week - its been a while for me - I really enjoyed it - out of the batch this was my favorite

    Thanks for the compliments folks,, thats nice of you,,, I`ll try to post some more pix. its hard to notice before I mention,, but that eagle is missing a foot,, go back and see it again,, I positioned the bird like 3D pose so the missing foot is not obvious,, when you hang it on wall .
    The bird was hit on the road and the foot was broekn off but still attached to the bird with a thin skin,,,, the bird keeps hopping around on one foot and eventually starved to death,, by the time I got it,, the hanging foot was all dried up and rotten. It worked out alright though.
