What color were the eyes, yellow or red? Was the bill broad (rounded-looking) and light bluish grey a lighter line and black tip? Or was it all black and triangular profile? Was it a particularly large duck? These are all things I think somebody who is shooting at Redheads and Canvasbacks should be able to figure out since the limits on each are set pretty tight.

Take a pic of the top of the bill and we'll know who's right and who's wrong.

It's definately not a canvasback, honestly looks like 2 different ducks lol more redhead on top and a little more like a canny on the bottom. I think the neck is just stretched, I didn't want to say it but that might be a hybrid but I think it's a redhead.

it was shot in Aransas pass on Friday by my son his second duck hunt, personally I believe its a can x redhead hybrid. Game warden stopped by our blind and he said he would count it as a canvasback due to bill shape. When we got back to the marina he came over and asked if we had plucked it yet. I said no so he asked if they could take pictures of it.

Last pic he's stretched and pic don't show blue bill very well. First pic shows bill. It's a redhead


Edit:
Those new pics make me question it. Pics don't show blue well because his bill is mottled black/blue. I think you are correct, hybrid.

the pic of the top of the bill shows the ridges that cans have. I would say hybrid. Super awesome bird for sure, great color to boot.

Hybrid. Those ducks are squirrely buggers.
