Looks good. It looks extremely bright out to be 3 minutes before the end of shooting time unless you are on one of those refuges that cut off mid-day.

He looks good! His crown looks full so he shouldn't have many, if any, pin feathers. Great job!

without even looking at the bird the pride you're showing in that pic says its a worth mounting I think.

That said, its a good looking bird!

Looks like a fatty :thumbsup: positive thing with them is they feather out pretty early compared to most other ducks. Hard to beat a wood duck!
