I don't. I would do the google image thing, but I would refer to live birds photos. Search EJPeiker. He has a section on just birds. Great head shots. Most ducks are loafing, but they are fantastic photos.

I've taken in magazines with great photos of birds for taxidermists to use. I've used North American Hunting Club's magazine, DU Magazine, and a few others. DU Usually has something cool in it.

Over on Taxidermy.net the member "Seaduck" sell reference CD's. You can buy a specific species or "flying" waterfowl. I have 4 of them and they are useful by seeing multiple shots of bird from different angles. He has a wigeon CD listed under the For Sale forum. He has TONS of options.


The main problem with waterfowl books are seeing the different angles other than a side view.....and the majority of pic's are of standing birds.
