    Cans, Ringers and Buffleheads. In no particular order. I just can't pick one.

    Jacques Cousteau... wait a minute, that's a different type of diver. :confused: In that case, Hooded Merganser, not the favorite to eat but certainly the favorite to look at.

    Lake O Hunter, I used to see more scaup years ago- is it true they raft out in the middle of the Big O? I've often wondered about the east side, not much marsh out there. Right now it is very shallow, just hoping the level rises.

    there's always bluebills on Lake O some place just depends on lake level and wind directions; sometimes there are huge flocks out in the middle other times they hang more toward the north shore marshes

    Ok, guess since I am mostly in the SW areas is why I don't see them...last time was when I was way out on the rim of Cochran's and a few came in.

    again depends on wind, but west wall can be good; I think north shore is more consistent

    Always been Bluebills, until I got a shot at some goldies...now they may be my new favorite!

    20140122_143526.jpg My favorites are the ones I haven't shot yet. I enjoy watching waterfowl and don't need to pull the trigger much. I can pass on most species but I never pass on a Can or Redhead. In January 2014 I shot my first Harlies so those are my current favorites. Hope to make a King Eider my favorite.
