Ringneck! They are pretty birds, but we pass on a lot of them because their skin is thicker and they are a pain in the butt to clean!

It oughta been named a ringbill. Ring around the neck is hard to see. They're beautiful diving ducks, for sure.

We had a group about 200 buzz blind- land middle of lake. Pretty awesome. We pass on them unless REALLY slow. Never seen one flock of any ducks that large in north Tx set and land on smaller water
