Duck ID


Is this a redhead? Killed this pair on Saturday, but all the pics I find have a silver back and black breast.

re: Duck ID


You have to remember that all young birds don't get there color till very later winter. Even old birds don't get into full color till then.

re: Duck ID


Yeah, that's just my first redhead and the only pics I've seen are mature ones in full plumage

I have a mounted pair that I killed a few years ago on the last day of the season in one shot. Both are old birds and full plumage.

re: Duck ID


Last year we had a group of about 1 dozen buzz right over our blind, the sound those Redhead's make in flight is like a jet engine!

We usually see a few the first few hunts of the year and then they're gone.
