Duck ID

I'm embarrassed to say I shot a duck I can't identify. When I pulled the trigger I was thinking hen gadwall or small hen mallard. I'm now leaning hen pintail without the "pin".

Growing up all we ever saw were mallards and black ducks so all these new ducks here are tough to get used to.

I immediately knew it wasn't a mallard from the wings and feet and it just didn't look like a gadwall to me (though I've only seen 3 up close in my life).

yep, hen pinner
Definitely hen pin. We're you up around Salt Creek? Public Shooting Grounds?? Place crawls with pintails.
