    I did the triple triple this weekend. 3 Canadians, 3 Snows, and 3 Eagle Heads. There are a few snows hanging around they are pretty decoy shy but managed a few on our ponds. I read an article in the post saying there were 20,000 birds at Jumbo dont know what that guy was smoking spent 2 days morning and night by the Jumbo never say more that a couple thousand if that and they have been here since Oct anyway, looking for the first big push the 1st week of March hope the weather does not make it any sooner. I'll post pics tonight.

    Alamosa an Eagle Head is a mature Blue goose. When blues mature they get what they call an eagle head on them that is the whole goose is a greyish shade of blue and the head is snow white just like a bald eagles head. They are an awesome looking bird and we ended up killing several in Missouri when I was back there hunting several weeks ago.

    You can see a couple in this pic although the eagle heads are hard to pick out on the birds when they are piled like that.

    Now correct me if I am wrong but a "eagle head" is a immature blue goose, the adult have blue and white feathers, where the eagle heads have primarially blue/grey bodies.
