Looks like a nice mount but the bill color looks a bit off to me.

Bill and feet are both the wrong color!

Bird does look clean...but I think the colors are off...or it might be the flash.

The bill is a little too blue, and the feet are pink. The feet are right color, but the bill is a little off. He's gonna fix it for me.

A buffies feet are flesh with a slight red'ish tent not pink! The bill should be more grey than blue!

I respect what you're saying, but a bufflehead has pinkish feet. at least the ones I shot did. Maybe they were "hybrids" or something.

He said he messed up on the colors. He is going to repaint it the right color.

I'm very happy and proud of the job he did. All that really matters in the end, is whether I'm happy or not.
