Subject: [Tweeters] Mandarin Duck at Juanita Beach Park
Yesterday on eBird, a male Mandarin Duck was posted at Juanita Beach Park in Kirkland, first on the sand in front of the condos, then after flying, near the mouth of Juanita Creek. It was still there late this a.m., sitting on the far edge of the creek in the sawdust, then walking around a bit. A photographer reported that it had also been at the lake edge in the same area. The spot where it was sitting this morning is best accessed by heading for the beach where most of the gulls hang out, past the volleyball area, then taking the short “dry land” trail to the creek edge.

Not that I think it flew in from Japan, but it had no leg bands. Where ever he came from, he’s a beauty!
