As always the question of wildness will pop up relative
to ducks, especially pretty ones like Baikal Teal. For
perspective and in an effort to look for patterns of
vagrancy, Roberson's Rare Birds of the Pacific Coast (1980
and no doubt missing some recent records) lists the following
for Baikal Teal:

Alaska 11 records - 6 spring, 1 summer, 4 fall
Ladner, BC - 1 on 20 Dec 1957
Dungeness, WA - 1 in Jan 1920
Anacortes, WA - 1 on Jun 1979 (prob escape)
Finley NWR, OR - 1 on 12 Jan 1974
Niland, CA - 1 on 29 Dec 1946
Riverside, CA - 1 on 12 Jan 1974
Honey Lake, CA - 1 on 1 Dec 1974
Gray Lodge Ref, CA - 4 Jan 1974
