Duke Ducks: Part 3 - Mandarin Duck

Possibly the most beautiful duck featured in the Duke Gardens collection is the Mandarin Duck. It is among the smallest of the ducks that live there. There is one permanent resident male. I have, on some occasions, seen a female and another male. They are fairly docile and tend to stay away from the rowdier ducks, although, they don't always pass up a free meal. Below are some pictures for your viewing pleasure.
