The Loch Ness Wood Duck we'd thought we'd spied near the Red Cedar River turns out to be a Mandarin duck. They are native to Asia, so my little friend at the back of the picture is a feral duck like the two in front. He's a beauty, and I'm glad I got to see him today.
More information on Mandarin ducks can be found here.
