Egyptian Goose

By Fred263
Thanks for your clicks, comments & votes to my previous image for which I'm most appreciative. Apologises for not voting or commenting much the last two days as I had no HW or CH due to a boiler problem & felt cold..SadSad

I hope you may like my image today of the Egyptian Goose which was taken about a week ago in Kenwood, N.London. It looked cheerful while it was feeding on grass, I presume, & gave me a friendly stare as I approached.Smile Hope the weather improves soon for outdoor photography as winter seems to be with us again.Sad

Thanks for looking & have a great day.SmileSmile

Thanks for that, Ron. Smile Smile I observed that too - I researched some further facts about the Egyptian geese behaviour & discovered - Both sexes are aggressively territorial towards their own species when breeding and frequently pursue intruders into the air, attacking them in aerial "dogfights". Egyptian geese have been observed attacking aerial objects such as drones that enter their habitat as well. Neighbouring pairs may even kill another's offspring for their own offsprings' survival as well as for more resources.
