SPECIAL ENTRY INSTRUCTIONS:

DRAKES ONLY are allowed for certification on all species of: puddle and diver ducks, sea ducks and mergansers except the Mottled duck

Either sex are allowed on all species of: Geese, Cranes and Swans


SPECIAL SPECIES SUBMISSION INSTRUCTIONS:

A. Greater and Lesser Scaup - Due to the fact that it is extremely difficult to determine the difference between the two species, a second photo must be included for certification of these two species. The second photo must show the extended wing to show the white speculum in its entirety. Note: The Greater Scaup will have a white wing speculum that extends the entire length of the wing while the Lesser Scaup will have a white speculum that only extends half way across the wing.

B. Canada Goose and Cackling Canada Goose - Due to the fact that there are 7 different sub species of Canada Geese and 4 different sub species of Cackling Canada Geese, we have elected to simplify these into two categories- Canada Geese and Cackling Canada Geese. To distinguish the difference between the two, there is two different criteria to go off of. Any Canada Goose weighing more than 6 pounds will fall under the Canada Goose species. Any Canada Goose weighing under 6 pounds will fall under the Cackling Canada Goose species. The second criteria is the goose's bill. A Cackling Canada Goose will have a short triangular bill while a Canada Goose will have a more elongated bill.

C. Mottled Duck - The Mottled duck, found in the SE region of the United States is the only duck that is difficult to tell the difference between the male and female. Therefore either sex is allowed to certify this species. All other species of Puddle Ducks, Sea Ducks and Mergansers are drakes only.
