These colorful ducks (at least the drakes are) are a non native species from Asia. Brought here in the 1920ies to show their colorful plumage some individuals escaped and with time distributed throughout Germany and some neighbour countries. They mainly live in ponds and lakes around big cities and nest in tree dens. Today there are ca 450-550 breeding pairs in Germany and some of them in a close distance to my home. Very interesting photo models…
