Opening day was a good day this year. Brought home a limit. Got two teal in the am, then picked up a black duck and a drake wood duck. I only needed two more, and picked them up with a double on a pair of mallards, and too my delight the hen was my first banded duck! :lol3:

Nice Bag!! I was up in the Pittsfield area 2 weeks ago, managed to get a couple teal and mallards.
The drake greenhead unfortunately had a half tan head : ( Wish he had full plumage, he was a nice size bird.

you sure that's a black duck, hard to tell in the pic but almost looks like an immature drake mallet. I see to much brown on the body for a black. But again just may be the picture throwing me off.

There was a teal on top of the black, it did how ever have some white on its wing, and had a little bit of a curly que tail, and hint of green on it, looked like it was some sort of a cross breed with a black and mallard.

If it had white in its wing that means at some point a mallard bred with a black duck.
