Whistling Wings in Sparks, NV. (775) 846-5369. Give Brent a call. He's very skilled at what he does...

A buddy of mine does it, but I don't think hes up and running for new clients yet.

Fur and Feathers (Alan Barrail) in Spanish Springs has done me well. He's done 15 or 16 birds, and elk, and a pronghorn for me. Very reasonable prices. I have a nice can in the freezer waiting to be taken to him. 425-0116. Tell him Andy Mink suggested him. Here's a pic of a GWT he did for me several years back.

I used Alan as well for my bighorn mount. His duck mounts look great.

Some more Fur and Feathers birds. The lighting isn't great but you can see the good work. Kudos if you can i.d. the odd duck.

REMEMBER, you get what you pay for!!
Birds are tedious work. Lots of meticulous detail goes into the finished product if done correctly.
Get good references. Find out if the mount has held up, or leaking grease after a few years. If a taxi takes short cuts, it will be evident soon enough!
Some Taxidermists can mount birds. A few...can bring them back to life! :thumbsup:
Good luck!
