The Goldcrest (Regulus regulus)

One of the taxidermist’s greatest challenges.

Here are the results of the gorgeous little Goldcrest I recently completed.

Considering how small and fiddly it was, I am extremely pleased with how it came out!

The glass dome with the pine foliage really sets this piece off.

It’s now in it’s new home with the owner who found this poor bird laying in the middle of the road.

She is really pleased with how it turned out and she left me a lovely review!


I am extremely pleased with my Goldcrest commission from Taxidermy co.

Krysten created a simple mount in a protective dome that fulfilled my brief perfectly, showcasing the tiny form of the Goldcrest in a fabulous way. She listened to my brief, ensured that the work stayed within budget and regularly updated me with her progress.

After completion, the item arrived in quick time and extremely well packaged. I would not hesitate to commission again


I really do get to work with some lovely people.
