I can agree with everything said. I wanted to point out one thing. The bird had plumage issues as well. The pepper specks in the white cheak is a give away. Also the scapulars and pocket feathers were not developed as well as it could have.
The pose is off and the GREEN reeds against the ice (and blue rim), make little sense?
The most important thing to remember is what every disappointed person has done, who makes this same mistake. You didn't do your homework. Had you looked around, or shipped the bird to a professional, you would be showing off your bird with pride, instead of shame. Lesson learned. No need to beat you up any further. $325 should have gotten you a better mount, but you won't be the last person to post a thread just like this. I've been here for 9 years....probably seen 100 posts just like this?
If you wanted to have some scenery, do you think you could have gone to a craft store and pulled off something better? Spend the money on the bird alone, and make your own diorama. I know a guy who sells many replicated additions that can make any mount pop. He visits this site often.
