This Hottentot teal is soooo sleepy.
April 16, 2014 - Mandarin Duck (Aix galericulata)
Requested by: bird-
These ducks were once common in eastern Asia. Habitat loss due to logging has decreased their numbers in Russia and China, although feral populations exist in Europe and the United States. They eat mostly plants, along with some insects, aquatic invertebrates, and even small vertebrates. Female Mandarin Ducks build nests in tree cavities and incubate the eggs alone, with the males defending the nest until the eggs hatch.
The art of an art duck. :V
