Years ago, I found a duck that I believed to be a hybrid Mallard X widgeon on the west Hartford reservoir. Turns out the bird was actually an escaped Chiloe Wigeon.  That species is native to southern South America.  A local aviary had several of them at the time and at least a couple of them had escaped.
