And, in even more exciting instances…
Some incredibly rare and exotic animals have been coming out of hiding.
And now, they are reemerging in full force.
This weekend, a rather unique, and incredibly rare animal was spotted at a deserted Burnaby Lake in suburban Vancouver, British Columbia.
The Mandarin Duck.
The colorful duck which boasts a gorgeous orange, purple, white, and blue plumage is native to China and Japan, so it is next-to-impossible to get a sight of one on this side of the pond.
Over the decades, these particular birds have somehow migrated to Europe, and the odd few have made it over to North America.
And this duck, which has been affectionately named as “Trevor,” made his spectacular first appearance in Burnaby Lake back in 2018, and he attracted hoards of tourists flocking to catch sight of him.
As he wasn’t to be seen again.
An excited photographer posted a video of the beautiful bird, and he was quick to gain tremendous viral attention.
Trevor has been spotted once again… I mean, he isn’t difficult to miss, is he?
So when he is out and about, he certainly draws a lot of attention.
And, luckily for us all, Trevor is back.
A small group of tourists visiting the lake reportedly spotted Trevor peacefully swimming around once more.
This duck is the lockdown anecdote none of us knew we needed.
Stay strong, Trevor!
