Well, the first of the drones are ready for the keel shelf. My glass eyes orders with 3-differnt supply houses continue to be back ordered. So as a result, we are carving drones. They hunt the same, just don’t make for the greatest office/display birds.
These are “Lifesize” Common Goldeneye's
Canvas over wire with basswood heads. They will eventually get butternut keels and join the spread in the fall. They aren’t perfect without eyes, but they will get the job done, and have a nice antique look to them, which I like.
