  3. Thank you for showing me this Mandarin, Bob - she's gorgeous! I guess I'm not going to see one this year, although they can often be found within five miles of my home. My very best wishes to you and the family - - - Richard

  6. Hi Bob,
    Its always understandable when people rave over the male Mandarin but the female is also beautiful but not so flashy,

  9. As always--- superb pictures, Bob. One thing I noticed about this lady and other mandarins is the hook at the end of their bills. Mallards have a flatter front to theirs.

  26. Her mate gets all the attention, but she’s soft and beautiful on her own. You just have to look a little harder!
