The Mandarin Duck is a small and (in the case of the males) spectacularly colourful species of waterfowl. Native to East Asia, Mandarins have been widely kept in aviaries in Europe and North America and birds have frequently escaped to form wild colonies. Lever gives a detailed account of this beautiful bird, with particular emphasis on the invasive populations in Britain and overseas.

This book is from the Poyser Monographs series. Regarded as essential reading by many ornithologists, the Monographs provide an enormous amount of detail on individual species, covering evolution, biology and ecology, breeding and feeding, distribution, and conservation.
