I did go through DU and Audubon's id pics before I posted, so I wouldn't waste peoples time. I new this was going to be difficult. I am not new to ducks, been hunting ME, NH, and MA for many years.
just having fun my man, not questioning your hunting experience or anything else.
Its certainly difficult to id a bird without a photo. i bought this coffee table book a while back for just this same purpose. it has a lot of great pics that you dont see in the regular identification books. i think its intended audience was decoy carvers, but i found it had great images for us hunters trying to id birds as well.
