Red-crested Pochard x Rosy-billed 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 Red-crested Pochard x Rosy-billed Pochard hybrids.  You can access the PDF of Aves 4 (2013) - the article starts on page 21 with section 2.5 on this hybrid beginning at page 25 - the five photos captioned "Peposakaente x Kolbenente" are Red-crested Pochard x Rosy-billed Pochard hybrids (and I think the sixth one captioned "Wahrscheinliche R├╝ckkreuzung eines Hybriden Peposakaente x Kolbenente mit der Kolbenente" translates to "probable backcrossed hybrid (Red-crested Pochard x Rosy-billed Pochard) x Red-crested Pochard)".

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).
