New York has a new star – a multi-coloured duck.

The male mandarin duck – Aix galericulata – has found fame in New York after he appeared in Central Park.

His colourful plumage quickly earned him a keen following on social media.

It all started on 10 October, when a video of the colourful bird was shared on Twitter by Manhattan Bird Alert.

The species is native to East Asia. At this stage many people think that it has escaped from a “private owner”.
