Seen out and about
Showing off their family
The new residents
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. I think he will go far and become a Leader among Geese.
In the meantime he is a headache for his parents!
