BWT
« on: October 23, 2019, 04:05:32 PM »
I shot one today and was wondering how rare it is to shoot one in WA?  I know they migrate very early and can't remember every seeing one during hunting season.  I ended up with 2 GWT, 1 pintail and 1 BWT, an uncommon mixed bag for me for sure.

Fairly rare? They get shot and I'll see quite a few of them on the opener around Moses. I have never seen a photo of anyone shooting a full plumage one in this state though. I have seen a couple cinnamon every year though. Congrats on a fun little trophy!

Yeah, I just Googled up eclipse cinnamon teal and think that is more likely to be what I shot.  Having only seen GWT, I saw the blue and just assumed it was a BWT without thinking it could be an eclipse cinnamon.  Either way, it's a first for me.

Got a picture? I hear telling the difference between a hen BWT and a Cinny is almost impossible unless you have both in hand since one is bigger than the other. Congrats on the trophy it is fun for sure.

That's rad. I guided a youth hunter who shot an eclipse cinnamon (or possibly BWT) hen in Sept. near the Tri Cities in 2014. I shot the same kind of bird (BWT hen or eclipse cinnamon hen) in early November 2015 near Raymond, WA. Cool bird to add to the lifetime WA list.
