    In need of a prop

    I am working on a new series and I am looking for a large stuffed black crow/raven. Any idea where I might find one?

    There are prop houses in Los Angeles and New York (check resources at www.pdnonline.com). If you have a local ACT (American Conservatory Theatre) group, you might have better luck with them.

    I posted this message/request on a taxidermy website and got a few very surprising responses.
    Apparently this type of bird is illegal to kill and stuff and some of the members now think I am part of a federal "operation" and I was even called a dirt wad for asking the question.
    Funny.

    That is strange. I would have thought taxidermists would be more open to the use of their handiwork. I assume you told them to stuff it?

    You might be stuck using an "antique" (stuffed prior to the restriction) from a prop house, or a fake of some sort.

    Have you considered theater companies or amateur dramatic groups? Might lead to some openings for other shoots as well

    well, my next place to look is the Univ. of NM drama dept. to see if they can put me in the right direction.
    I'd be happy with a big plastic black bird if one was available.

    If anyone is familiar with the work of Flor Garduno, I am looking for the same type of bird used in some of her photos.

    Hmmm... Maybe it's time to move to NJ! They're in season here right now...

    Some people are like Slinkies. They're really good for nothing, but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.

    There are a large number of ravens in my back yard right now - squabbling with the squirrels over the cat food.
