Sorry for the late response but I wanted to chime in that Mandarin Ducks have been in the Kirkland Totem Lake neighborhood for at least 25 years. As a former resident of that area I used to see a male in the wetlands behind the apartments off NE 124th St. in the late 1990’s. My friend who also lived in Totem Lake several years before me, said she saw a male in the creek behind her apartment. Could they possibly be breeding or have we only seen escapees? Either way, I am a sucker for those beautiful boys in breeding plumage. 😊

Happy Birding,
Kellie Sagen
