Bird Taxidermy Apprenticeship (2022)

About the Film

What do nature centers, natural history museums, and hunters have in common? They all require someone skilled in bird taxidermy. This film shows how, with the help of a two-year Mass Cultural Council Apprenticeship, Victor Cole has passed on the art, craft, and science of bird taxidermy to Nicole Baldelli. He is now confident in her ability to “capture the essence of the live bird,” and fulfill the needs of his clients when he retires.
