Egyptian Goose

Alopochen aegyptiacus

Size: Up to 73 cm long
Habitat: Inland wetlands and coastal estuaries
Feeding: Seeds and gtrrasses, occasionally worms

The Egyptian Goose is easy to identify by its brown eye patch. The back is brown and legs pink. The sexes look identical although the male is slightly larger than the female.

Although a native of Africa, these geese were introduced to Europe and have flourished.

These photos were taken in the Okavango Delta, Botswana and Amboseli National Park, Kenya.
