Nice!!!!!!  This was a 250 yard shot hand held!!!  Also a lifer (Gadwall, please don't laugh that it took me this long to find this one, ha ha)

We will not laugh, we all have some bird it took us a long time to find. If you ever come up my way there is plenty of Gadwalls around here, the most common duck in fact.

I don't think this is a Gadwall, sorry. It's too small (NSHO 45-41cm, GADW 46-56cm), making it a teal. I can't tell if I'm seeing buffy triangle under the tail or not, so I'd go with Teal Sp.

you are right. I do think I see buffy under the tail and the head shape points to green winged teal as well, i think, but it would probably be best to leave it as teal sp.
