I saw a very rare duck for my area yesterday, a Canvasback drake in full plumage on a big bass pond I was fishing we really don't get ANY Canvasbacks around here, before he got there there was three BWT, a bunch of those ugly butt Mergansers, three Coots, two Woodies, and four Canadas, then he came in I was in aww for a while I still am :lol3: :eek:

the same thing happened to me on a pond that i was bass fishing about a week ago, except there were 6 BWT, 2 grebes, 2 woodducks, 2 canadas on the top pond and a canvasback hen and drake on the bigger pond.
