Dinosaur of the week: Egyptian Goose

Alopoegyptian goose

These two Alopochen aegyptica were part of a feral population in Regent’s Park, but I’ve also seen this species in southern Africa in its natural habitat.

The overall numbers of these geese are declining because of shooting and poisoning.

  1. They are thriving here in Somerset West, South Africa, I’m delighted to say. Lovely birds. We have a pair who live very close to our garden; I keep trying to persuade then to come in.
