The Break -- Drake Blue-Winged Teal (Anas discors)
As his expressions continued to distance him from being identified as an eccentric taxidermist, this piece is important in that it marks the pivotal time in which Newmyer had begun to accept himself as an artist. This sculpted teal springing forth out of the splash is comparable to our own awareness of the force of life within us.

Eight-time World Champion bird taxidermist and wildlife designer Frank Newmyer of Michigan virtually invented the genre of artistic waterfowl mounts in elegant habitat cases. We are pleased to offer this gallery of bird specimens from around the world. Many of these mounted specimens are also available for legal purchase through Wildlife Designer in accordance with US Federal laws. Click here for purchasing information.
