Today might have been the best day ever. Ever. With the guidance of a local taxidermy genius, Dave Pilkington, (website) I finally began my first (of an inevitable many) taxidermy project! I have been toying with the idea of practicing taxidermy for a few years now, but as I can barely watch gory operations on TV on top of the fact I wouldn't know where to start,I have been putting it off. As it turns out I had no issue with skinning my magpie and I can't wait to stuff it tomorrow. I will update you with the finished article tomorrow.
P.s if you have any aversion to dead animals leave now, I'm already on the downward spiral of addiction.
