The Egyptian Goose (Alopochen aegyptiacus) is a member of the goose family Anatidae. This species breeds widely in Africa. It is also to be found in Great Britain, mainly in East Anglia, in parkland with lakes.

This is a territorial species in the breeding season, and will nest in a large variety of situations. Egyptian Geese pair for life.

The sexes of this striking species are identical in plumage, though the males average slightly larger. They eat seeds, leaves, grasses, and plant stems. They will also eat locusts, worms, or other small animals.

Egyptian geese were considered sacred by the ancient Egyptians.

Perhaps someone will tell me why we were able
to film this bird on a lake in Central Texas.
