Why do you suggest an ex-captive bird? Most of the recent records of Mandarin have been accepted as relating to wild birds, and I would think this (a female in mid-winter) had very good credentials. I don't see any signs of damage that would suggest captivity. Author: cywong Time: 3/02/2014 23:27
I think it is an ex-captive bird because of its poor feather condition, although I want it to be a wild bird.
