Until recently, the North American and Eurasian forms were considered distinct species.

Each year a few males-and doubtless females-of the Eurasian form turn up in North America, that giving rise to speculation that somewhere in North America a few of these so-called "Europeian Teal" may be breeding.

P.s they are among the last ducks to reach their winter habitat in fall and the first to depart in spring.
