Centennial Park in Irving is home to many birds, but none like the duck known as "Manny."
A few weeks ago, the Mandarin duck showed up in Irving. Nature photographer Kent Jarrett said people named him Manny.
The rare sighting is causing a lot of buzz in the bird watching community, as Mandarin ducks don’t even belong in North America, let alone North Texas.
The latest news from around North Texas.
"The true birders don’t believe he’s a bird of Texas because they live in East Asia," Jarrett said.
Where he came from remains the big question. Jarrett thinks he flew in on his own — from a zoo or aviary — or that he was someone’s pet.
