Thought I'd share some of the pics I got the other day hunting catch-n-release style with the camera.

After the ducks, I left the water and went to higher ground.

Cool and pretty shots there, what kind of camera and lens do you use.

The bird pics were all with a Nikon D810 and Tamaron 150-600.

I had never heard of a Brewers duck, but I think you might be right. I was thinking it was a Wigeon Mallard cross. At one point there was a Mallard drake nearby and the Mallard was noticeably bigger.
