When wooing in the fall and winter, adult male Mandarin Ducks (Aix galericulata) dress to impress: their full plumage includes an iridescent crown, a red-hued face with “whiskers,” a maroon breast with two white stripes, and orange “sails.” This colorful ensemble disappears during the summer molt, when the males resemble the duller brown-and-white females, save for their red bills. The Mandarin Duck is native to East Asia, but because these famously beautiful birds have been exported all over the world and some have escaped captivity, you can now spot feral populations in Britain, Germany, and even in some parts of the US.
