black bellies













i went to sta 1 this morning with caretaker. neither one of us had ever shot a black belly whistling duck before so that was the target. caretaker had scouted a spot and it payed off. what a fun bird to shoot. it is amazing how well they respond to a whistle. the total bag for the day was 9 bbwds and 3 drake blue wings. after the shoot we had breakfast at the local taco stand. thanks for the invite caretaker! i had a blast.

Vanckirdby- that middle photo of the drake blue winged teal is amazing, what a looker! To get one out here is a very rare treat - once in a lifetime sort of thing. The black bellies are also beautfiul, nothing like that here. Nice!

you would love cooking with the black bellies. they have huge legs.

the bwt was a very nice one. it had white all the to the back of its head.
