All birds are mounted on a simple driftwood or branch base free of charge (either for a tabletop or a wall hanging location), and each bird is life-size and can be mounted in various natural poses. Multiple birds can be mounted onto one branch/landscape/base. Some birds may not be able to have a vocalizing option due to a lack of available open-mouth forms. Open-mouth birds will typically have an additional $10 charge.
While most birds are done as a life-size mount, shoulder mount birds are also available and are a good option if you are looking for a smaller or cheaper mount, or if the body of the bird is too damaged for a life-size mount.
While the simple driftwood base is complementary, a custom landscape/base or a multi-bird landscape for more than two birds will be an additional charge. You will need to describe the type of custom base you want and provide me with a price range you are willing to pay for, and I will then send you a quote for it prior to building it. Click here to learn more about how the process works. For specific questions or requests about the positioning of your mount or the base/landscape it will be mounted on, please visit my contact page. In addition to custom bird taxidermy, I also provide custom soft mount taxidermy/lifesize mounts and run my own Etsy shop, where I sell various taxidermy pieces that are already complete and ready to ship. If fish are more your thing, I can provide custom fish reproductions/replicas. There is a link to both of these on the menu at the top of this webpage.

Taxidermist and/or company will not be held responsible for the theft, fire, flood, vandalism, tanning, hair/feather slippage or any other loss or damage.

Taxidermy is an art form that works with natural mediums, as such there is the possibility for natural flaws or instances where the skin has been improperly handled by the hunter where slight alterations may be needed to create the finished product. In some instances if the skin has been improperly handled, it may not be mountable. While reference pictures may be used, the finished product may not look exactly like the reference picture due to working with a natural medium.
