Mandarin Duck at South Shore Yacht Club in Milwaukee Wisconsin on February 10, 2023
Word was out that the Mandarin Duck that was seen last December and early January had returned to South Shore Yacht Club in Milwaukee this morning. If it is the same duck, probably is, it was hiding somewhere else for about the last month. Anyways it put on a nice show this morning and followed a female Mallard around while I was there. It will be interesting if it hangs around. This bird is not a wild bird and considered an escapee, still fun to see. It was a sunny morning but very cold with a good wind out of the north early morning. Images were taken on February 10, 2023.

As per normal, nice photos. I went there 3 days ago. Just Mallards and Geese. Heading back tomorrow.
Beautiful pictures Jim thank you for sharing.
As per normal, really great photos. I went there 3 days ago. Just found Mallards, Red-breasted Mergansers and Geese. I will try for the Duck tomorrow, even though I have numerous photos of it.

He appears to be in fine display plumage now. They are such beautiful little ducks.
He’s beautiful. Great picture
As usual, your photos are outstanding. I was down there 3 days ago. Found Mallards, Geese and Red-breasted Mergansers. I will make another trip down to the yacht club. I have numerous photos from before, however it will be nice to see the Duck again.
