They missed the baikal teal-probably the best looking teal.

I am stationed at Kodiak Alaska with the u.s. Coast guard. I recently started hunting waterfowl and low and behold my first waterfowl taken was a banded Harliquin. I was told I just the won the waterfowl lottery. I had no idea just how lucky I was until I started to research the bird. True to what I was told lottery indeed. I am hooked on waterfowl hunting forever.

I'll never forget the morning I dropped a Mandarin duck out of a flock of six in Eastern Oklahoma. Talk about confusing for a a couple of weeks trying to sort it out. It was my first mounted bird!
