A lady brought me her grandson's first bird and the next day the other grandson got his first.

Now that is freakin cool! A great idea for a first of hopefully many for those little boys..... Hummm, as soon as the boys get a pellet gun in their hand I may be getting a Vole mounted...

As a young person, I tried to learn taxidermy form the Northwest School of Taxidermy (.....The 1st bird I tried was a dove that I bagged in my backyard.....Needless to say, I had feathers everywhere, and I gave up my schooling..... :lol:

Doves & pigeons, I've been told are the true test for a taxi man.....Great looking mounts as usual Breck...... :smiley_10sign:

Having dabbled in scientific preservation of game animals for my college I will second that doves and pigeons are extremely difficult. Their skin is like tissue paper and the feathers fall out like crazy, out of six attempts at Doves or pigeons I have one that is decent. GlassEye I give you mad props that looks great!
