[quote="duxrus"]I would shy away from books unless they are used with other learning sources (videos/taxidermy lessons). Videos show the actual action of how to do this or that where as looking at a simple picture doesn't. If you did go that route Frank Newmyer has a few nice manuals for bird taxidermy......but most books.manuals, and even videos are OLD with few being current.
Youtube has a lot of videos so I suggest going there for a look to see if you even feel up to tackleing such a project before spending $. Taxidermy.net has pages of material on how to mount birds along with tips of what to do and not to do .
P.S. Hoodies are among the hardest waterfowl to do correctly so proceed with caution...
Thanks, that's a lot of helpful info. I'm confident that hoodie will turn out A ok.
