Tell me im right

Postby Duck Collector » Wed Feb 20, 2013 8:05 pm

My grandmother took a pic of this duck last week and she is arguing with me that its an exotic duck of some sort. I am almost positive its a brewers duck but i wanted proof that im right. Sorry the quality is so bad but oh well...

Whatever it is I'd shoot it :sniper: mallard X Storm Widgeon that is molting already or juvenile?I wish I could see the speculum better. The white scapulars are throwing me way off?

Ok... That explains white scaps I guess but where did the white cheek patch come from? Definitely not a characteristic of a spoon or a gad. Not arguing just trying to piece anatomy together.

This is a whild shot ShovelerxGadwall. Similar, but as in a lot of hybrids some differences. A better picture would be nice as the wings tell alot in this hybrid.
