Taxidermy Male White Pheasant
This is my first completed taxidermy project of 2019 – a stunning white (or leucsistic), male pheasant.
This specimen definitely put me through my paces, due to the fact he was in moult. Feathers were flying out left right and centre and he had sustained some damage to his wing and leg bones, which I have to retain in the taxidermy process.
He also had a bare patch on his neck that was quite noticeable. I used some of the feathers he dropped to carefully repair this patch.
All ready to go to his new home now.
Happy 2019 everyone!
