Burke's "Game Bird Carving" should be considered one of the all-time best how-to manuals. Informative, easy to read text, clear photographs, and most important; an easy to follow color blending method helps neophytes and experienced woodcarvers alike develop basic to advanced wildfowl carvings. As an instructor and carver for over twenty years, Game Bird Carving was the first carving book I bought. I still consider it a valuable reference.

This book is really first class value. It is a bird carving course . I have purchased many carving books and this is one of my essentials. It covers carving , burning, painting, everything , Although some of the species are American , with a bit more research you have all the tools at your disposal for our own birds. A book that should be on every enthusiasts book shelf
