Mandarin Duck.
The Mandarin Ducks are considered to be the most beautiful ducks in the world.
The male is pristine-looking and striking.
It has a red bill, white and reddish face, “whiskers”, a purple breast, and during the breeding season, has distinct orange “sail” feathers at the back.
Originated in East Asia, Mandarin Ducks are held in special regard by the Chinese and Japanese as a symbol of marital bliss and conjugal fidelity because they tend to stay together year after year, unlike most other species of ducks.
