This is an Egyptian Goose that I spotted about a week ago, at a small park lake in Lake County, Florida. These waterfowl are not true geese, but are an old hybrid mixture of Shelduck and Goose. This species originally came from the Saharan regions in Africa.
There a number of Egyptian Geese out in the wild in Central Florida. All Egyptian Geese here are escapees from zoos or private farms, or are birds intentionally let loose for whatever reason (or descend from such). Please click on the thumbnail image to see a slightly larger version of each photo of this beautiful bird. Enjoy!
