    What is the first Duck. I know the others are Widgon also known as Baldpate. But I'm not familer with the first. It must not frequent the Mississippi Flyway.

    Now those are some strange looking duckies. Very pretty though. I'm with Gale on the hawk. Hope he eats a fish. :rolleyes:

    Thanks for the comment and the proper name of the duckies.
    As far as the 1st one goes I was told by someone there that it is called a Madagasger, but that not firm yet.

    I looked through some duck id sites. The head and bill really look like a northern shoveler

    but the chest looks differant. I ran it by some other duck hunters and they think that is what is. But its in its summer plumage. They really a pretty duck. They are also refered to as a Smiling Mallard.

    Ben - All great shots, but the first one is a stunner. Beautiful duck, and the way the duck's colors match the water is beautiful. Nice work! :biggrin:
