My hunting buddy and I got these today. Neither of us could identify them. To me they kind of look like white-winged scoters. Any idea?
Nope. head was black as night and back was kind of a dark grey/black, belly was kind of light grey. Eyes black also. There was some white on the wings as you can see in the picture. At first I thought it was a diver, but it didn't have the diver's beak with the hooked tip and serrated sides.we got bufflehead saturday , it looks a lot like them was the head a light brown
Atleast someone can hit them when they go by doin mach II, i figure all you "big duck" guys would gladly shoot teal but don't bother and leave them to save yourself some embarrassment because you know you can't hit them hahahL But he is still just a teal killer to me ! hehehe
As I already stated further up, the eyes are black. The feet's webbing are kind of bluish grey with orange toes, if that helps.Brother just called me back. He said its hard to tell from the pics without having them in hand but said they were female goldeneye. He said to confim it you should look at the eyes and see if they are yellow. Open the wing and you should see a couple bars as well.
