I was just curious what kind of duck this was. This is my first colorado duck and I have never shot one of these in michigan. More bufflehead and mallards in michigan. Thanks in advance!! It also has an all brown/dark belly no white

I would call it a female scaup.

Here is a good site for ID

Thats what I thought it was but I thought they had white belly's so it through me off. I know not every duck is colored exactly the same it just had a few, what I thought, significant differences.

A hybrid maybe?

Not positive, but I believe that is a dead duck.

Thanks for the input guys. I thought so but like I shared before I had never killed one of these in Northern Michigan.
