    That's who I have used for the last 10 years. Jeff is a great guy and the prices are really fair. They have done over 20 mounts for me and I have been pleased with every one. Actually located closer to Valonia.

    Prices can be all over the place. If it is a big shop with a great reputation they may charge as much as $275 per bird. A smaller shop might be $150 - $175.
