I cleaned 7 green-winged teal yesterday, and most had quite a bit of fat, and seemed to be healthy birds in good shape. One had more fat than I've ever seen on a teal.

In discussing this with my dad, I figured this was an indication of a good crop of healthy birds this year. He theory was that the fatter birds are slower fliers, which explains why I was able to hit them. :neutral:

I'm hoping for the former, which is why I ask: are the birds you're harvesting looking like they're in good shape? Any different than other years?

All of our birds with maybe 2 seemed to have good fat for this time of year.

1 pinny and 3 mallards for me all had more fat than I expected to see this time of year.
