Some info from the Seattle Audobon Society.

The Baikal Teal breeds on tundra and taiga in central and eastern Siberia, winters in southern and eastern China and southern Japan, and is a casual vagrant to Alaska and down the coast to California. This highly decorative duck has long been popular in waterfowl collections, which complicates the question of birds found in the wild. In the past most records were assumed to be escaped birds. Such was the case of a male Baikal Teal shot from a flock of Green-winged Teal at Dungeness (Clallam County) in January 1920. A more recent record of a long-staying visitor near Kent (King County) in winter 2004–2005 has been accepted by the Washington Bird Records Committee. Oregon and British Columbia each have one record as well.

Nice Pinny/mallard hybrid kwackwacker.  Do you have a close-up pic of the Hybrid's bill and feet?  By the look of your picture, the feet appear orange and the bill doesn't look like it has any black on it.  I know a hybrid has different variances of color depending on age, time of year, etc, but I have seen very few with the feet that orange.  They usually have more of a yellow tint to them.  The bill generally has some black on the top and side to resemble that of a Pintail.  If you have a close up of the feet and bill I would sure like to see them.  Thanks and again nice bird.

John

having never hunted sea ducks I'm curious what they taste like. Are they like any other duck or fishy or what? :drool:

If there's a hybrid Stellars Eider/Spectacled Eider cross, that's what I'd want.  Now if only there was somewhere where it was legal to shoot Stellars . . .

I second that one Tom.  That would be an awesome trophy duck to have.  Haven't heard from you in a while.  Hope all is going well.  Talk with you soon.  John

Hunt the Yak river bottoms if you wana kill one man...there is alot of public ground too. Around here it's common to kill 30 or so wood ducks a season depending on the areas you hunt....sometimes we pass em up for green
