Playtime is Over, time to catch up!

Postby The Waterfowler » Sun Jul 08, 2012 10:36 am

Amazing how far behind a three week trip can put you, but now it's time to get back in the groove. Lots to do and phone is ringing, fleshing wheel staying hot, tumbler working overtime and a student here to compromise my timeline. But, I even had a little time to do a couple for myself in between all this.

Red Shoveler showing some piebald mutation. The wingman going with him will be more typically colored as this one is paler in comparison. Brian, would you believe no pin-feathers on this one!

And lots to do from the most recent trip to Uruguay and Argentina.

Out of those piles the cin teal and wigeon have to be my favorite. Looks like you shot one or two birds this trip. :lol3:

Brian, was a good trip. Found the Holy Grail of waterfowl in Uruguay. More Whistling Ducks and Ringed Teal than I knew existed!

They are a pretty little duck. Usually traveling in very small groups or pairs. One of my favorites from down there. Ramsey got this great picture of a pair of drakes, one of the best photos of them I have seen. I'm going to try and copy this and will be a challenge for sure.

That's a lot of weird and good looking ducks. It's amazing to me how many species there are around the world. Thanks for always posting! I love reading up on your site and here on DHC.
