More detail of the band, if anyone can decode it.

Linda,

I have pictures showing the band and the partial banding code I can read is 2588. https://ebird.org/checklist/S73051842?view=photos

A band can be seen on the Mandarin Duck's right tarsus from a photo on Michael Hingerty's eBird checklist of 9/1 at the concrete bridge of Lake Merced. In other photos, mine included, the duck has its right leg drawn up and not visible. Perhaps someone will be able to photograph a readable version of the banding code, and possibly discover the origin of this Mandarin Duck.
