    We have some here in Winter with the Mallards. MN.

    I agree they are in with Mallards most often. Hybrid Mallards often seem to think they're Mallards, and hang with Mallards. Of course I'm no expert either, just an opinion & observation.

    We killed one in a rice field in NE Arkansas in 2005. It came in with a hen gadwall. We got checked by the game wardens that day, and he told me it was a young mallard drake out of color. I thought it was a mallard cross with a weigon. Looked it up when I got home, and found out what it was. Great looking Brewers in a glass case now in my collection.

    some areas in the northern part of alabamaa used to hold a lot of gadwall and widgeon in the 70s and early 80s. Point system made them cheap at ten points each. We killed a number of what we called gadgeon or Widwalls. You call them Brewers I guess.

    I killed this Brewer's in Missouri at a small family pond. It came in with three gadwall. We shot all 4 ducks with 4 shots. Good memories and a great duck for my wall. Thanks to Brad's Birds Taxidermy for the great mount. I added an Audubon 1st edition print below it.

    Awesome birds and beautiful mounts. Makes you want to look through the flock before you pull the trigger for sure.

    Actually, my buddy shot this one in Northern MS. I have had it in my office waiting for him to come pick it up. Great looking bird! The Waterfowler mounted this one this past summer.

    Except a Brewer's Duck is a Mallard x Gadwall, not Gadwall x Wigeon.
