Subject: Re: Mandarin Duck in Central Park
It is very likely an escaped captive reared bird. They are very popular in the captive bird trade. A post in another list serve mentioned that the duck has an unmarked plastic band on one leg which would support the theory that it is an escaped or purposefully released aviculture bird.
