Egyptian Goose at Rietvlei Nature Reserve

Egyptian Geese were considered sacred by the ancient Egyptians, and appeared in much of their artwork.

There is a fair amount of variation in plumage tone, with some birds greyer and others browner, but this is not sex or age related. A large part of the wings of mature birds is white, but in repose the white is hidden by the wing coverts.
