As an avid bird watcher there are a few birds that have remained rather elusive to me. The rather stunning Wood Duck being one of those that I have never seen. A friend of mine from Texas sent me a package one day, open it up and about freaked. He had sent me his first ever duck kill which happened to be a Wood Duck. It is beautifully stuffed and mounted. It was a phenomal gesture, but I defiantly put it on my 'who sends someone someing like that' list. I can see why people do it, recording memorable times/pets. But wanting someone else dead animal for their own collection is odd. Specially if it is something they too can find for themselves. Still chucking at the phrase 'proudly mounting my birds since 1971'.
