The one on the bottom, not sure if the pic does it justice. A lot bigger than the other GWT drakes and odd orange/brown head. Speculum is the same.

For some reason that never crossed my mind. The pic looks like there is some blue on the bill, but I didn't notice that at the time. Crap, now I gotta dig that carcass out of the trash and take a better look.

In a hurry to head to the lease, will have my son do it later. Will report back...

It is cool, but I don't think I would have had it mounted. Cool bird, but really wasn't very *pretty* for lack of better terms.

A mallard X sprig would be one I'd get on the wall for sure.

Had I shot it, I would mount it. Simply because Iíve never shot a cross breed and it would be something to remember

Hmmm, since it only has blue on the sides of the bill (not the whole thing) and there are no larger white patches in the speculum, there is a very good chance it could actually be Pintail X GWT. It would explain the very slight differences in wing patches since pintail have very similar ones.

nidea

Look at my sig pic for comparison.

Wouldnít a pintail cross likely still have a dark head?

You got a point because the widgeon bill is blue all the way over the top. Your duck's bill blue patch more rembles a pintail beak.

It's a wigeon x green wing. A friend of mine shot a pintail x green wing and it looked quite a bit different.

I think it's a gorgeous bird and a lot more rare than a mallard x pintail...

At first glance I thought so too. THat blue on the bill does not go over the top, at least I don't think so anyway. That would give a grand clue in the pintail direction.

How would a pintail/gwt Drake get such a light colored head?
