Chiloe Wigeon, which is native to South America, especially to Chile. The Chiloe is about the same size as the Mandarin, is quite colorful (both male and female share the same plumage pattern) and because it does not come from this hemisphere, no federal or state permits are necessary to keep it. It is not at all noisy, it's vocalizations consist of soft and rather pleasant whistles. More

I found that un- paired males court and form bonds with ducklings as part of a pair formation process in Chiloe Wigeon. I know of no previous descriptions of this behavior in any waterfowl species.
