A flying mount would look nice - something that shows off the blue one the wings.

If they're dumb enough to be lured in by plastic you're really just doing them a favor.

Know your target before you pull the trigger.

I can only hope that mine turns out that well. I took my bird in the same plumage and that picture to my taxidermist who is more of an artist in hopes that it turns out that way. I got the picture from www.birdmanstudios.com. Tons of awesome mounts and ideas.
