Beautiful Drakes and Jewelry to Boot...

Postby R-Factor » Sun Oct 21, 2012 10:24 pm

Another good weekend in the north zone...plenty of birds Friday with a banded Drake Mallard in the mix. Saturday the shooting got a little sloppy, but I did pick up a nice little Drake GW Teal...I'm always amazed with the coloration of these tiny birds!
