What is so interesting and unusual about the mandarin duck? First of all, its name! Citrus fruit has nothing to do with it, although some of the bird’s feathers are painted in orange color. The duck received its name after Chinese nobles, traditionally called mandarins. Their distinctive feature was the wearing of catchy orange costumes. As a bright spot they stood out against the gray clothes of commoners.

Only males of mandarin duck have such a spectacular plumage, and then just in spring and summer. Gray-brown feathers replace the multi-colored attire in autumn, and it gets difficult to distinguish the birdie in the bush. It doesn’t belong to endangered species, but hunting it is prohibited. However, in cold weather, mandarin ducks occasionally become victims of hunters who take the plain birds for other species. Widespread deforestation and a considerable number of natural enemies aren’t conducive to their prosperity too.

Mandarin ducks are important not only in nature but also in the culture of the East. So, in China they are a symbol of fidelity, because a pair at these birds is formed to all life. In addition, people love the duck for attractive appearance and often use its image in interior decoration. Patterns for embroidery machine may be very useful in this regard.
