lol, I showed my wifey some of your pics, and she said if I plan on having that many birds in the house I'll have to get my own place. I guess I'll miss her. :grooving:

I have a dozen or so in our house and my wife gave me the Carriage house which is over 2000 square feet to do as I please. With over 750 mounts in there it's getting crowded now. Keep her happy cause if she's not, you're not.

Smew in Russia had another given to me by a friend in France. That Wood Duck hybrid was pen-raised, but I killed a wild one on the Ms. River.

Mallard/Black, Mallard/Mexican, Mallard/Pintail, Wood Duck/Ringneck Duck, Wood Duck/Shoveler, Shoveler/Gadwall, Mallard/Gadwall (Brewer's), Wood Duck/Pintail, Mallard/Redhead, Blue/Whitefront, Bufflehead/Common Goldeneye, Common Goldeneye/Hooded Merganser, Common Goldeneye/Barrow's Goldeneye, Bluewing/Cinnamon, Bluewing/ Garganey, Wigeon/Lesser Scaup and maybe a couple of others that I can't think of without going to look. About half are pen-raised that friends have given me and the rest I killed in the wild.

The two in the middle are Hybrid Barrow'/Commons . I killed three in Alaska on the same day in 1993.

The head color in the sunlight on these hybrids is bronze, quite striking.

Wood Duck/Ringneck, Wood Duck/Shoveler and Wigeon/Scaup. A Wood Duck is as bad as a Mallard and will breed almost anything.

:thumbsup: waterfowler,
I knew you still had plenty of things to show that had'nt been seen on here yet.
so, a month or so ago you said the count was at 749, what are you up to now?
I love that buffle/golden eye, it looks like a king size buffie.

About 760. I've added some of my two boys things and working on habitat cases and doing an expansion for my room. Still have plenty in the freezer to do but been pushing on 27 birds for a client in Minnesota so I can deliver them in a few weeks.

I've seen a few Eider hybrids, but always with other Eiders.
