While canoeing I spotted this small duck in a river near a nature reserve in the middle of Holland.
Thank you Xiaoxuan These pictures look exactly like the duck I saw.
Here's a juvenile male Mandarin: http://www.rspb.org.uk/community/cfs-fil...Here's an Eclipsed male: http://www.rspb.org.uk/community/cfs-fil...
I thought it was a female mandarin duck, but I got confused by the orange beak and the brown patch on top of the head. Still I can't find any pictures ore information on changing young male mandarin ducks.
This is a Mandarin duck...it's male in eclipse phase
