I believe they have shot a few in the Prado basin. There is a pretty good size wild population in Orange County.

There is a very old Duckmen video where they shoot one and Phil Robertson calls it a Chinese wood duck.

My great aunt used to have 1 show up on her pond every winter in Atascadero. She wouldn’t let me “visit”

A long time ago I used to raise them for taxidermy. After I sold my favorite personal piece I never replaced it. Back then I could buy 2 year old drake for $50 but now they are around $200.
