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 are 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 less than 6 pounds will fall under the Cackling Canada Goose species. The second criteria are the length of the goose's bill. A Cackling Canada Goose will have a short triangular bill normally less than an inch in length while a Canada goose will have a more elongated bill.
C. Blue-winged Teal and Cinnamon Teal - Due to the fact that it is extremely difficult to determine the difference between the immature drake and hen Blue-winged Teal and Cinnamon Teal, a second photo may be needed for certification of these two species, if it is not evident that the bird is a drake. The second photo must show the extended wing to show the complete white speculum below the blue wing patch. On the drakes the white area will be clearly white, while the hens will have a speckled white wing speculum.
D. Mottled Duck - The Mottled duck, found in the SE region of the United States is difficult to tell the difference between the male and female. Therefore either sex is allowed to certify this species.
E. Black Duck - The Black duck, found throughout the United States is difficult to tell the difference between the male and female. Therefore either sex is allowed to certify this species.
F. Fulvous Whistling Tree Duck - The Fulvous Whistling Tree Duck, found in Southern United States and throughout Mexico is difficult to tell the difference between the male and female. Therefore either sex is allowed to certify this species.
G. Black Bellied Whistling Duck - The Black Bellied Whistling Duck, found in Southern United States and throughout Mexico is difficult to tell the difference between the male and female. Therefore either sex is allowed to certify this species.
