It’s so lifelike.

And this is exactly why wallhanger pelts should NOT be mounted. Whether it’s a soft or traditional mount, if the pelt wasn’t prepped for taxidermy purposes then leave it alone. You will only end up with a hash job that does a disservice to both the animal and the art of taxidermy.

A million times this.  When I see bad taxidermy being posted by their creators or sold (which is getting upsettingly common), I get really sad because I view it as disrespectful to both the animal and the art of taxidermy.  It’s one thing to learn, and make mistakes while learning, but most people aren’t even trying or taking the time to learn techniques that have been developed over centuries.

I laughed too loudly at this

Seriously, when biology classes discuss evolution and talk about the different theories back in the day (like Lamarck) this needs to be on a slide somewhere.I don’t care if Fuck is offensive…it’s funny. Damn it.

A group of eastern wild turkeys (Meleagris gallopavo silvestris) encountered on a beautiful October day. This is only part of the large group we encountered. In the fall and winter hens and their poults/chicks from that year form large aggregations, sometimes up to 100 birds. Filmed are 19 birds crossing the road, but a bid portion had already crossed. I’d say this group had about 40-50 from what I could observe.

I find it hard to observer turkeys and not think of their dinosaur heritage.

Come join me at the Cornell Lab Migration Celebration!! I will be there with my colleagues representing the Crow Research Group. Come learn cool facts about crows, play games involving crow biology, and even get “tagged” and take data on other “tagged” people during the day. There are a ton of other non-crow activities as well, including live raptors, guided bird walks, bird banding, and other interactive research exhibits.
Come celebrate birds!
