Egyptian goose on Kings Beach lake

Have you even noticed that you will always find Egyptian Geese where ever there is water.  Lakes, dams, rivers, ponds and even on the off chance a backyard pool.  When the Boardwalk development opened in Port Elizabeth some years ago it wasn't long before a pair moved in and they have been there ever since, hatching their chicks every year.  The same has happened at the new Kings Beach development with a pair moving in very soon after completion.  I snapped one of them the other day while checking up on a geocache in the area.

  1. So right, seems everywhere I went with water nearby there were Egyptian Geese. But must have missed the pair at the Boardwalk.

  2. I think they are so pretty. We had some that nested in our gardens at work, but I haven't seen them in a while. We also had some black swans there. I wonder what happened to them?

  3. These are a strange looking bird - there were feral ones in the UK, although I have no idea if they are still there.

    SA is rapidly moving up my must visit list!
