Mandarin Duck (Aix galericulata) User: Chris  (See all photos - 1652)
Canada (British Columbia) captive / domesticated The origin of this bird is unknown, however I'm going to assume it's an escape or release and place the Domesticated tag on this photo.
He was following a female Wood Duck for the entire time I watched him. He even made CBC News headlines in Vancouver. Either way hundreds of people were lined up to see him put on one of nature's most impressive displays.

One of the most striking ducks and your capture makes him look great.

We were lucky to have just a bit of sun before it clouded over. I wish I knew where he came from.
