2003 - 2004 Waterfowl Hunting Season

 

The below photos are of Canela doing what she loves to do, retrieve waterfowl. This was the first year that I had hunted Sea Ducks.  There are four primary species of sea ducks as well as the Sea Goose (Brant) that frequent the lower Chesapeake Bay; the Black Scoter, Surf Scoter, White Winged Scoter and the Long Tail Duck formerly known as Oldsquaw.  I hope you enjoy these pictures as much as I did taking them.
