One cool little duck!

Greenwing Teal Drake By far, this is little duck is my favorite duck.  Has always been.  We used to have one in our first aviary that was pinioned and he would let me get within inches of him.  There is nothing any harder to hit as a duck hunter, nothing any better tasting in the duck game bag, nor any duck as beautiful.  In the field, the hen Greenwing Teal has an unmistakeable high-pitched quack.  The drake only gives a soft little peep in reply.  No further comment is necessary.

Mallard Drake

If there is one duck that represents all of duckdum, it is the mallard drake.  Green head, chestnut chest, purple specullum, orange feet, it screams duck!  This particular duck was carved for a client in Nashville.  I have done more mallards than any other duck.
