Fulvous Tree Duck

Don't get a chance to shoot many of these. This is only the second one i have shot in over 35 years of hunting. I have shot many of the more common black-bellied whistling ducks. It was shot on Salvador WMA this morning.

The hunting has been slow on the Pier 90 side this year. They have killed some ringnecks (mostly) and a few big ducks on the Bayou Gauche side.

Congrats on a real rare bird. I've killed two but both were killed in south Florida where they are significantly more common. Pretty birds for sure.

Been wondering about Davis pond/Salvador. After reading LDWF's ariel surveys, combined with having a successful season on lease hadn't bothered with hunting there this year. Wonder why the lack of birds? Conditions are fair? Pressure should be down I would imagine.

There are some areas in the Salvador WMA with lots of feed. Don't know why the birds are not there.
