Mixed-up mixed bag: During our hunt, we could have had four different species of birds from both the waterfowl and upland bird worlds. I'd like to end a day afield with at least five different species from the two different worlds: a combination of pheasants, quail, chukar, huns, mallards, teal or any other species of waterfowl moving through the area would make a very cool mixed bag. Heck, throw in a crow or coyote for good measure.
Banded Bird:** I don't have a band from the leg of a duck or goose--and I want one. Goal number two: get some waterfowl bling.
