Wood Duck in Alaska.

Postby OneLunG » Fri Oct 13, 2006 8:58 am

So, I was just talking with a few people. And from what I hear - There was a Drake Wood duck in almost full colors on a wooded pond close to an area I sometimes hunt. This is the first ever wood duck I have heard of in Alaska....Anyone else heard of them here?

Also from what I hear, there was a Drake eurasion widgeon spotted on the flatts here...

yah I've heard of wood ducks before but only on vary rare occaisons.
also most people mis identify a eurasian wigion they see a noraml wigion thats not full pulmage and think cause it looks diffrent then it must be erasiuan.

I would hunt that pond and maybe you'd get a chance at the woodie.
thanks to the men and woman of the United States Coast Guard- without them I would not be here.

Well - The people I heard it from are the bird watching type nuts. So I'm guessing they know how to identify their birds....

Too bad the pond the woodie is on is just outside the legal area. Still temping though.

shot a widgeon i thought was eurasian, but it was just a different plumed american version. sure was nice though, even better in the oven. also,the harlequin population is up in this area.
