    Though understated, I think she is still a lovely duck.

    Have you ever eaten Ptarmigan? When I was a kid, I was really into survival stories (Gary Paulsen, etc.). I remember reading about them being delicious and think about that a lot.

    Color me disappointed that the thread title wasn’t just a classic autocorrect mistake.

    I like ducks so much I have a pond dedicated to ducks.

    Last fall we had lots of ducks.

    Agreed.

    I’ve always thought Florida should change theirs to the Florida Scrub Jay instead of the mockingbird, which so many states have as theirs.

    Tennessee having the mockingbird is very appropriate though.

    Burrowing owl would be fine, actually. I like them, and I particularly like spotting them in neighborhoods where residents have to protect their front yard.

    But, the Florida Scrub Jay is one of only a few endemic species in North America and has been native to only Florida for what is believed millions of years.

    Most of the ducks I see around here are Muscovy ducks. They're ugly as fuck.

    I also see lot of anhingas around here. On the bright side, there are a ton of cool birds in my neighborhood like sandhill cranes, white egrets, ibises, grey herons and blue herons, too.

    Buffleheads come in faster than anything I’ve seen. You can literally hear them buzzing.

    Shouldve swung over to Fairbanks before heading south through Denali to Anchorage. I was planning on driving to the Yukon on the top of the world highway before this whole covid thing happened.

    Good thread. Had ducks my whole childhood growing up, top notch birds. You really can't even express how superior ducks are to goose, who are in the lowest tier of all animals on planet earth.

    Would agree with runner ducks.

    I saw some black ducks/fowl earlier in the year on a lake nearby and then a couple would occasional be on the pond in the early AM. Looking around, the could be American coots, which are more like water chickens, but idk, never saw them except for on the water and in flight. They don't look like Black Ducks.

    As far as challenging to shoot, anything that is small and arrives at about mach 2. Ring necks, buffleheads, teal.
