    Do you have any multispecies displays/cases? Maybe an upland or wetland scene?

    Probably not. Would have to look. But, I don't think so.

    Not under glass that I can think of, anyway. You've got some NA teal trios and the shovelers of the world together, but not in any big scenes and under glass.

    Any pictures. I picture them about the size of a blackbelly but the look of merganser? Is that about right or am i off.

    As I write this they almost look like a "snake bird" / anhinga.

    What about pink eared ducks or bronze winged? I was also going to ask if you had torrents love those little things in size what species are they similar to.

    The Bronzewing is my holy grail of S.A. and only seen one. Shane has a Pink-ear not me but I have an invite to come hunt Australia and might take it up if the permits work out with a taxidermist I know now. Torrents have habits like a Harlequin and are pretty small, nowhere the size of a Black Belly. Body size smaller than a Hooded and a tail like a Merganser. Got some pictures somewhere of a couple I mounted. Hens are prettier than the drakes in my opinion.

    Got any knob billed I would love to see that hybrid of yellow billed and white cheeked(?). I believe torrents are amazing especially seeing what they live in and how they climb cliffs to nest. Got to give them respect. How do you hunt them from what I have read only few live in an area since there is so little vegetation growing. Do you jumpshoot. I personally can't pick a favorite of either gender aren't you allowed only one per hunter
