Surf Scoter, or something like that.

Postby goosetalk » Wed Dec 06, 2006 3:31 pm

So my buddies were hunting the Mississippi this morning and they killed what is believed to be some type of scoter. They took it to an agent and he thought is was some type of scoter. After they described it i googled some pics and it seems to be a surf scoter with out the yellow on its bill. Has anyone else killed anything wird like that. The agent said that there have been several special ducks killed this year. I even heard of a group killing 3 eiders at Mark Twain, but that could be a tall tale.

Tell you what...if I didn't know what something was the last place I would take it to is a game warden.

Well, they new it was a duck and not a grebe or something, and that it would qualify in the "other duck category". They just weren't sure if it was a hybrid or something.

If you had a picture of it, you could know for sure what it was. Was it a female?

I dont have a picture because I am at school, but he double checked and said it was an immature surf scoter drake. I found pics that may second that or it could be a hen. I wont be completely sure until I see it this weekend cuz its going on the wall. I try to take some pics of it, hopefully they'll be good even though it will be frozen. Here is the pic I found on the internet

Or it is a white-wing scoter female but I can't find any defining pics on the internet.

More than likely a white wing scoter.

A buddy killed an Old Squaw hen about 8 years ago at Bushwacker Lake in Vernon County.
