    Got this little guy yesterday. It was all by itself. Responded immediately to a C&S Custom Speck Call. The guy blowing a honker call lost out. I'll try to post some pics. 100_0201.jpg 100_0199.jpg 100_0200.jpg The underside was quite dark. The breast was stained also. Had a neck ring. Half of one anyway.

    I am no expert by any means, but it looks just like the cacklers that I shot in Oregon last year. Mine had a faint white ring on the neck and darker (rose color) chest.
    Regardless, nice bird!

    Cool little birds... We call the small honkers "squeakers" over here... I actually see & shoot more Aleutians than actual cacklers.
