Ducks

There are currently two ducks living at Whitford Bird Garden, A Wood (or Carolina) and a Mandarin Duck (Pictured Left).

The Wood duck species is originally from North America and one of the more visually impressive. Our Wood duck is male, as it sports very striking iridescent plumage and reddish eyes.

The Mandarin Duck is originally found in Eastern Asia, with the Drakes being widely regarded as one of the most exotic looking ducks. Like our Wood Duck, the Mandarin Duck is male, due to it boasting far better plumage then the female counterparts

Interestingly, the Wood Duck and Mandarin Duck species are very closely related, the females of each species are almost identical.
