Today I discovered this great photo of a very impressive-looking Egyptian Goose on Mpho Phiri's blogsite, from Mafikeng, South Africa. Mpho and I check out and make comments on each other's blogs, from time to time. His site is called Mafikeng Birding Blog. I think Mpho's picture above is a terrific shot of a remarkable-looking goose and just had to spread it even further. There aren't that many goose species in the world; maybe around 60, if you count the true geese (16), add the subspecies (37) and include the shelducks (7). I personally think the most beautiful goose in the world is the Red-breasted Goose, but the Egyptian Goose, which is one of the shelducks, might just be the most striking-looking, especially in flight (go to Google).
Please comment if you wish.
