    Default Hybrids and bands

    I was wondering, because I haven't shot any of them here in Alaska. Have any of you shot any banded birds or hybrids? Comment them or add pics if you can!

    Hybrid barrows and common goldeneye are fairly common as far as hybrids go. I'll try to get a pic from my friend

    Problem is, most of our birds are shot in eclipse, so it might be a little hard to tell if they are hybrids or not.

    True, when I started hunting here I was bummed about that because I hunted in Washington for my whole life and I used to shoot full plumage ducks. We actually have a friend down there that shot a pintail x mallard and that was cool.

    I think the goldeneyes will be the most common hybrids you find in AK.

    This one is my favorite over the years-


    Another from this season.
