The band recovery page on the Ducks Unlimited website claims someone harvested a banded black duck here. On the whole, though, they tend to be exceptionally rare in this area.

A buddy of mine's dad shot one a few years ago, other than that I've never even seen one. It's funny where random birds will turn up.

Utah birdwatchers have turned in 11 "confirmed" Black Duck sightings, most with pictures, in the last 15 years or so. I think the last one they got was 2014.

see: http://www.utahbirds.org/birdsofutah/Profiles/AmericanBlackDuck.htm

There were plenty where I come from but I haven't been fortunate enough to see one in Utah or western Wyoming.
