Wahunsenakah issues Holiday Banquet patch

On December 4 Wahunsenakah Lodge 333 held their annual Christmas Banquet, described in a prior post about a cloth version of the 2010 BSA 100th Anniversary flap that was sold there.

No to be overlooked is the fifth and final patch in the 2010 series of activity emblems for Wahunsenakah Lodge. The three inch round emblem with pocket loop follows the style of prior issues from this year with ghosted lettering that emphasizes the attractive design of a predominantly black and white duck on a monochromatic background that evokes a winter atmosphere.

I was so fascinated by the unique duck on this patch I spent some time on the Ducks Unlimited Waterfowl ID page trying to identify the species. Since I couldn't match it perhaps an expert can help me out by posting the answer in the comments.

You can view this and all of the Wahunsenakah event emblems on the Lodge 333 Activity Emblems page.

Thanks to Larry Johnson for the patch and for advising me the designer of the 2010 Wahunsenakah activity patches is Alan Booth.

  1. My friend William in Tenaha tells me this is a long tailed duck, a variety that breeds in the Arctic and winters along both coasts of North America.
