Canvasback x Common Pochard

No photos here yet for this hybrid, but Joern Lehmhus has written about them in the German magazine Aves.  The text is in German but non-German speakers may still be interested as it's accompanied by a couple of photos of Canvasback x Common Pochard hybrids.  You can access the PDF of Aves 3 (2012) - the article starts on page 32 with section 5 covering this hybrid beginning at page 38 - the photos captioned "Hybrid Tafelente x Riesentafelente" (Abb. 26 and Abb. 27) are Canvasback x Common Pochard hybrids.  

If you have any photos of this or other hybrids that you would be happy for us to use here, please get in touch (either leave a comment or email).
