Friday Morning Before Work

Postby UGADawg » Fri Oct 11, 2013 8:03 am

Went out before work this morning in a local marsh. Not too many groups out but enough to knock the birds around a bit. Hit the GWT at 6:55 and whiffed on the drake, hit the BWT at 7:25 and again whiffed on the drake. Not the best shooting - still knockin the dust off, but a fun morning nonetheless.

you can see that the birds you missed were colored drakes???? I have never seen a plummed drake bluewing in the northeast.


I think with teal in the marsh you NEED other hunters....

nice job

Sure looked like drakes to me - different profile to the head and from what I could tell the colors were markedly different than the birds I shot. Both came in pairs - call me crazy but thats what I saw.

That blue wing looks like a drake to me. Just not plumaged.
