This is the most beautifully colored duck I've ever seen - the male Mandarin Duck.  

The Mandarin duck is a medium-sized perching duck with vivid coloration especially the red beak, large white crescent above the eye and reddish face and note the whiskers!

It amazed me how a bird could stand on one leg for so long and I did watch and see until when... and still did even if I left.
