This is the first of a mini video series on How To Taxidermy A Bird, for beginners. In each video I will concentrate on a different step. In this video I’m showing you how to seperate the secondary flight feathers from the bone so you can clean away the flesh thats hiding down there. This is an easy step to forget if you’re not 100% on how to taxidermy a bird as its a tricky area to get to. On larger birds you can also make a slit under the wing to make it easier to remove the muscle.
Please note: I’m not wearing gloves in this video as it was hindering the quality of the tutorial, making the subject areas a little unclear. I do recommend you wear gloves.
