About the Mandarin Duck
Mandarin Ducks feed by dabbling. They dine mostly on plant matter and seeds, while taking small animals like snails, insects, and even fish on occasion.

Escaped birds have established populations in several places including Great Britain, Berlin, and Sonoma County California.
