I know absolutely nothing about ducks or duck season. A good friend took this photo of ducks along the creek in their backyard.
I know one of our readers is a duck hunter. Maybe he can identify these ducks and explain the seasons for the benefit of everyone else.
Even though I don’t hunt them, it sure would be nice to live in a place where you see wildlife like this from your backyard.
I think those must be some kind of hybrid domestics??? They sure is UGLY!
You are so right…one of my readers sent me a private email instead of posting a comment…he said they were farm ducks.
His quote was: “They are a cross between muscovey duck (you can buy these at the farmer’s market) and another – I believe the black part of it is called an andover duck. (Not certain that is the correct name). But both mixes are domestic stock. PLEASE DON’T SHOOT THE FARMER’S DUCKS!!!!
