Taxidermy Tutorial: Flying Waterfowl Wings


In this video, I show how I wire and pose flying waterfowl wings. This is the technique I use for smaller species such as mallards, teal, wood ducks, canvasbacks, etc. For geese and swans, I use a different technique that will be covered at a later date.

    are you putting anything inside the wing to cure the area where you did not skin back all the way

    Too bad you live in NC, I'd volunteer to help you film for some training. I'm an embalmer, my husband wants me to learn and I'm also interested as I grew up with a brother who did taxidermy.

    Thank you for the reply. I have a mallard Drake to mount this weekend. Keep the videos coming.

    I really enjoy your taxidermy videos I only do taxidermy as a hobby and for some family members I found your videos very educational I was wondering what you use to mount a duck in a flying position to the The habitat?

    thanks for taking the time to upload the video, i have only just started taxidermy and learned a lot from your video, would you recommend just pinning a bird wing on a standing mount or wiring the whole wing as with a flying mount, and im finding im having to cut the end of the humerus bone off to make the wing look right, im also using wood wool for a form, so dont know if using a foam body would be a better thing to use, cheers.
