Egyptian Geese 2

I was driving back home one day and came across this little family of Egyptian Geese on my street.

This is the house where the funny-looking Dikkops live; I only hope they have not been displaced!

I stopped my car and got out to take a few photos. As I did so, the parents became more watchful, protecting their clutch from me; they are very good parents.

One little chap had no such reservations and came towards me to see who I was! The parents looked nonplussed, but stayed with the main group of goslings.

The bold youngster waddled closer, had a good look and then returned to his family.Β I think he will go far and become a Leader among Geese.

In the meantime he is a headache for his parents!

    Oh! My goodness, what beautiful birds! Nice Capture! Here in Massachusetts, USA we have Canadian Geese! Attractive enough, however on Golf Courses and Playing Fields for Sports, for Children Etc. the Goose Poop becomes quite the niceness issue! Have A great Day! πŸ™‚ ❀

      Thank you very much πŸ™‚
      The Egyptian Geese are not too much of a problem here – yet – but the Guinea Fowl are a real nuisance, like your Canada Geese!

    My friend Pam is right, your Haiku couldn’t be more perfect. These guys are so beautiful! That’s a big family to care for, but mom and dad have it under control. Love the feisty one!!! Hope they keep visiting your neighborhood so we can see them grow up!! πŸ€—πŸ€—
