What has everyone been seeing so far?

Just curious what everyone has been seeing so far this year. I have seen Blue-winged Teal, Woodys, Green Teal, Mergansers, Bluebills, & Golden Eye. Haven't seen any Mallards since scouting before season opened. I hunt Western PA.

I'm pretty new, so my exposure to birds has been limited. I'm in Colorado. I've been with people who have bagged Mallards, Red Heads, and a random one that we believe was a Goldeneye. I've only bagged Mallards so far this year personally.

Hunted opening two days in the South Central zone in Illinois this past weekend and killed redheads, ringnecks, bluebills, woodies, gadwall, mallards, and spoonbills over the course of two days. Never seen that much variety over my 25 years of waterfowl hunting. Unbelievable. I'm going back in December. :)
