Egyptian Goose…so beautiful!

Hello everyone!

A native to Africa, South of the Sahara Desert, the Egyptian goose, is probably the most exotic goose species in the wild in Florida.

Once the Egyptian goose has found a mate, it generally pairs for life


Egyptian geese were considered sacred by the Ancient Egyptians and appear in much of their artwork.
The Egyptian Goose is related to the shelduck, and is a cross between a duck and a goose. 


  1. They are indeed beautiful.
    I’ve photographed one wandering about the pathways in our zoo here in Melbourne, Australia, but never seen a mate. It wanders freely and is not caged, but I assume its been brought in from another country as they are not indigenous to Australia.

      I’ve been following them for a few days now in a pond near home and it is fascinating to watch them swimming, walking around the pond and mixing with other birds. Thanks for visiting!
