Lil’ s.parrow chick is all dried out now! For some reason its head caved in a little but other than that it’s perfect <3

Just gotta find a way to display it now.

Cute!

Idk how to Tumblr, but @gallusrostromegalus check out these lovely chaps I saw in an antiques store over the weekend (is tagging you like this ok? I’m unsure)

It is extremely fortunate for my husband and dog that I was not there with you becuase I desperately want to take the first two home and call them “Montegomery” and “Irving” respectiviely, and leave them in seculded places for houseguests to find unexpectedly.

In other news, clearly I need to go to antique stores more often.

I was able to mount white stripe the (piebald????) crow. . Hopefully I did him justice. Had some really damaged and ratty feathers. Lot of fledgling feathers that had yet to molt too. So hes looking a little imperfect but it just be like that. 

I was going to mount him in a flying pose to show off the weird wing feathers but then I noticed he had about 3 decent feathers on his right wing and the rest were like… yikes. Looks a bit better in a standing position so the feathers can overlap and hide the missing and broken ones. Poor baby must have been through a lot.

I really need to find a place to take better pics.

Probably not going to finish this sculpture, but I kind of like how it was starting to look.

This taxidermy shop has been closed literally every time I’ve been through this tiny town (though it’s been there for decades) but today it was open! It’s run by a lady taxidermist who has it as a little free museum.
