A few old birds
« on: April 18, 2014, 06:39:08 AM »
Hey guys...here are some more pics of some old taxidermy work I tried many years ago.Keep in mind these are pictures taken by a camera of old photos so not all real quality.
 I am just sharing as everyone says they like pics posted and stories.
 I did just birds and small animals for a few years until to many people were bringing me birds and I had young kids and no time so had to make a choice.
 There really isn,t enough demand in this area for birds anymore but maybe a retirement thing someday.
 Hope you guys enjoy some old birds...lol

Very nice work Gander.  Did you have a lot of hoops to jump through in order to be able to mount the owls?  I'm guessing you'd need to have some sort of permit just to have them in your possession?

and enjoy it!

hey Madgomer...you are right...a permit must be obtained for each protected bird.Up here you take the bird to the Ministry of Natural resources and they inspect them to make sure it wasn,t shot or any other wrong doing happened.
 This snowy owl was brought to me by a public school and it now is in a glass case at the school.
 Surprising enough a lot get hit by cars.Most of these were done for other people. Once the ministry knows who you are they sometimes call if someone brings an injured one in that doesn,t survive.
