Immature Red Head?

Postby Duck Collector » Mon Dec 10, 2012 8:18 pm

Some guys hunting near me shot it and it floated over to me so i grabed it. Sorry didnt think to take pics but it looked like a pin tail hen with a darker head but had a diver bill (had black stripe down center as well) it had a solid brownish colored under side with some black sploches on its chest. It had big diver feet but they were striped. Im pretty sure its just an immature red head but just want to make sure.

It looks like a pintail hen just a darker head, diver bill, diver feet, and black sploches on its chest. Whole belly is a off brown color

A young male. Have had a lot of them this year, more then have ever had in a year. Must have had one heck of a hatch, and possibly some late ones.
