Birds are one of nature's most beautiful and colorful achievements. You have everything from a slight variation in the colors of a grouse, the stark whiteness of a snow goose to the bright iridescent colors of the male wood duck. Each bird has intricate layers upon layers of feathers to highlight their unique colors and variations.
With them being this beautiful there is special care taken with each specimen to bring out those colors. Although they are a beautiful creature they are also one of the most delicate and tedious to mount, from the many hours of defatting a bird to the many hours of proper feather placement, each bird is handled with care. With a bird there are a number of poses that can be selected to bring the highlights out in a natural way without overdoing it.
