In my area it would be a

1. Cinnamon teal
2. Fully plumed blue wing teal
3. Storm Wigeon

I've got a nice GWT, Redhead and Hoodie. I've also got two pins and a buffle head in the freezer.

Here are the two pins I'm going to have done next.

Have all the teal family and a pair of Canvasbacks. Just wish that I wouldn't have passed on Whistlers when I was still back in TX.

1) Mature Snow Goose - got it, Dang hard to get because you have 10,000 eyes looking you over
2) Fully Barred up Speck - got it
3) Black Duck - got it (not the Mexican Duck, no offense meant!)- got it
4) Bufflehead and Goldeneye drake - don't got it!
5) I think a mature Gadwall drake with that faint purple cast to their heads, is a beautiful but understated bird.

Pat did these for me, shot all three on the same morning in January at a very popular public spot close to DFW..... I know everyone likes a cinnamon because of how rare they are for us but a plumed out BWT is my favorite.

Can (I ate the last one I shot 40 years ago)
Cin teal
Ring neck (probably do that one this yr)

Ring neck isn't top of list but it's time to put one on the wall. It's what I shot most with my dad when I was young.

Have killed everything in our flyway, including a few cins. Not big on mounting birds but you can bet your last dollar that Blue Phase Ross is going on the wall when he pops up. Anything with a radio tracker will get the nod also.

Pretty much exactly what I'd do. Except I'd swap the cinny and GWT. Cinnies are leaders, GWT are followers.
