The Mandarin Duck has been hanging around New York City this week despite the frigid temperatures, and he’s even dipping his beak into a new waterway — the Hudson River.
A duck-spotter going by Bulldog Lloyd filmed the fowl drifting around the Boat Basin at 79th Street off of Riverside Park on Saturday.

Normally the duck hangs out at the Pond in Central Park near 60th and 5th, though he’s also been spotted in New Jersey.
Quartz even built a website that tracks the bird’s location using Tweets.
