All you bird fanatics out there will be excited to know that the Mandarin Duck, profoundly rated as one of the winsome, picturesque, and most beautiful birds in the world, has once again been spotted in Canada.
Well, to be well-defined, the colorful duck is native to China and Japan, but that now makes this discovery even more special.
Meet the beautiful Mandarin Duck, highly rated as the most beautiful duck in the world, but sightings of them are far and wide.
The bright duck, which claims a superb blend of orange, purple, white, and blue feathers, is native to China and Japan. In short, it is next-to-impossible to get a sight of one in Canada.
But behold folks, Canada has a Mandarin duck of their own.
Over the years, these birds have managed to migrate to Europe, and the odd few have further made it over to North America.
And apparently, this duck, named Trevor, made his magnificent first appearance in Burnaby Lake back in 2018, attracting hoards of tourists crowding to catch a sight of him.
But, unfortunately, those tourists didn’t bode too well for Trevor’s nerves, and he wasn’t to be seen again – for months!
Until the bird made an unexpected entry at the lake again in November 2019, and gladly, someone was there to capture the essence of Trevor:
And, now, the number of tourists has subsided due to the ongoing pandemic, the beautiful bird has risen again. I mean, he isn’t difficult to miss, is he?
Few tourists visiting the lake reportedly spotted Trevor peacefully swimming around once more.
I mean, this duck is the lockdown anecdote none of us knew we needed, or maybe, this coronavirus is nothing but a way of nature ~ to call out the missed ones: The Environment! Stay strong, Trevor!
