Ring-necked x Tufted Duck (hybrid)

Ring-necked x Tufted Duck (hybrid)

Aythya collaris x fuligula

Status: Accidental in summer

Record: A drake was photographed in Cherry Co 10 Jul 2019 (Paul Timm, eBird.org).

Comments: Intriguingly, there is a record very close to Nebraska in Sedgwick Co, Colorado , also of a male (Mlodinow, Moore, eBird.org). The only other record in the central US, out of about 10 in all for North America, is for Minnesota 13 Dec 2018 (Svingen, eBird.org).
