White Mandarin Duck (Male)

White Mandarin Duck (Male)
There are various mutations of the mandarin duck found in captivity. The most common is the white mandarin duck. Although the origin of this mutation is unknown, it is presumed that the constant pairing of related birds and selective breeding led to recessive gene combinations leading to genetic conditions including albinism. Taken at Sylvan Heights Bird Park. Cropped only; otherwise untouched.

Seems to know that it is a much more elegant version of an ordinary duck...

I have to buy me one of these, and have him live in my bathtub! I think I may like the white ones better now than the ornate ones, which I'm more familiar with.
