Black Bellied Whistlers

How many of you have seen a black bellied whistling duck in GA? I figure they may be a few around the FL line, but I had 4 of them on a pond in Madison, GA a few days ago. Ill upload some pictures when I get them resized.

Had a flock of about 20 on a Plantation in SW GA a friend called me about last year but I couldn't get there before they left.

I have never seen them before, I thought it was pretty neat. I also saw two scoters on Hilton Head Saturday.

I have seen a couple of scoters that were shot off the coast of GA but the guys told me they were like 7-8 miles out, Some guy out of Savannah did run a guide service for "sea" ducks once upon a time but never heard much about it.

Iv heard of a few scoters being killed on santee in the past. Iv also heard that the scoters are flying farther south and there is a good number killed out of NE Florida.

I have heard that as well but I can't get anyone to tell me the "Area" not their spot but where just to go scouting. I have never shot one. Scoter, black and white wing are on the bucket list. One day

Don't know how it got way off down there but I do know of an Old Squaw that was killed on Seminole many moons back, beautiful curly tail and all. It is on the guy's wall.
