    It looks pretty darned good to me! The eyes need more work and the scaps are slightly too close together, but otherwise it's pretty tight. The head/neck area is particularly nice!
    Find some good flying reference pictures that show the top side of the bird, and study how the tertials, axillars and scaps work together when a duck flies. It is very easy to get it wrong since that entire area is unsupported by the form and you have to do it yourself.
