Answer about my nesting duck?

Hi, I submitted twice between late April and early May (second with a photo) asking for help identifying my nesting duck. I can't find the entry with the photo and I don't know how to see if anyone replied.


Thank you,
Andrea

She had dark bill, faint black eye stripe,n mottled brown feathers, white feathers around tail. eggs were yellowish. smallish duck. I kept looking for green teal wing spot but didn't find it, also thought pintail, but out of range and eye stripe.

Thank you for confirmation of my assessment she was a pintail! All eggs hatched and they are gone. Wish I'd seen them parade! We left the gate open 6 inches for them to get by. :)

Hi, sorry you didn't get the info. She is a Pintail. Migration patterns are changing with the climate and/or she may have separated from the flock during migration. How are the eggs?
