Brian uses just the top skull plate and fills the head with some type of poly fill. Pretty interesting method.
Of course he will invert those birds that allow you to do so, such as sea ducks, mergansers, wood duck, ruddy etc. His noose method does not allow him to invert heads that plain don't have the room to, but simply uses gravity to help him use two hands and simplify that particular part of skinning. Using an artificial head, once you invert the skin iver the head, you can pull the neck right through where the head was once attached.
