Yes thiers a Mandarin Duck in California and it does associate with other ducks.
Theirs also a couple of mandarn ducks at Reading University in the Uk. they seem to happily get on with the mallards and like bread
WE HAVE SOME TOO!
Are there any in minnesota.
Two has been spotted in Norway. http://www.fvn.no/nyheter/setesdal/article368982.ece
Whoever out there is doing distribution maps: can you revisit this one? For sure, the species is in the east of England—some friends and I saw 26 recently, including one albino drake—GRM 22:01, 2 March 2007 (UTC)
Don't forget us in England. I live in South Yorkshire in the North of England and we have three pairs of Mandarin Ducks in our Garden, on the River Sheaf. They come and go all day and attack the Mallards. Each Summer we have the babies come to visit and they come and knock on the french windows for food. In late summer the babies join up and are like Teenagers in their behaviour
The species was once widespread in eastern Asia, but it is now endangered despite being evaluated as Least Concern because of large-scale exports and the destruction of its forest habitat.
What? This doesn't make any sense. If it's endangered why is it labeled least concern? If it's not of concern, why are we saying it's really endangered? What's going on? john k (talk) 00:00, 2 January 2008 (UTC)

Cesky Krumlov, Czech Republic -Vltava River at U Milano
I have a couple of photographs taken May 4th, 2011 at the camp U Milano during a float on the Vltava River from Cesky Krumlov to Zlatá Koruna (about 50 minutes from start of trip) of a Mandarin Drake in full colorful plumage. The woman from the rafting company recognized the duck and was able to provide the Czech name so it evidently is very common in the district. 220.127.116.11 (talk) 16:36, 11 May 2011 (UTC) Sandi Jull 18.104.22.168 (talk) 16:36, 11 May 2011 (UTC)
