"I wanted to take a photo when it is setting off to fly, but I heard that it only flies once a day."

So said a bird lover who came all the way from Daxing district to the Yuan Dynasty Capital City Wall Site Park in Chaoyang district to photograph a duck. She had waited for hours to see whether the duck would fly so she could photograph it. A female Harlequin duck appeared in the park days ago and quickly became an online "celebrity." Many bird lovers have flocked to the park to watch it and take photos of it. This is the first time on record that a Harlequin duck has appeared in Beijing. Harlequin ducks are protected animals, and they usually spend winter in Japan or the Korean Peninsula. Experts said that this duck might have gotten lost while migrating.
