It is established in at least California. I haven't searched for it but how sure are folks that it is an escapee and not a wanderer from down South?

Since I subscribe to life bird alerts for King County, I have spent a year deleting email alerts about this escaped duck. It isn’t ABA countable so I’m not sure why so many people feel a need to put it in their eBird checklists. Does anyone know if there is a way to turn off eBird alerts for a specific species? There probably isn’t but thought I’d ask in case I have missed a toggle switch somewhere. Thanks.
