Blue WInged Teal

8 posts in this topic

I spent at least an hour in my sibley bird book trying to figure out just exactally what these guys are. the closest I can come up with is a Bufflehead, maybe a hybrid of some sort. I thought young Canadien goos at first but the white on the head is coming from the top not the bottom. Anyway here are some images I snapped while in the boat fishing today.

BLUE winged Teal is the newest possibilitie

HuntfishSd, I compared the 2 and I will go with your guess. Not exactally as my book shows but close enough. Thanks.

The only thing I don't care for on the last shot is the fact that my focus point only hit one duck so the female is a little out of wack. but hey not bad bouncing around in my boat.
