Egyptian Geese were spotted at Lake Paradise in The Villages, FL on Tuesday evening at dusk. Until recently, I had not seen both genders together. There are not a lot of Egyptian Geese here so it was not readily apparent what both genders looked like in breeding plumage. I spotted two drakes and a single hen among lot of Canada Geese and a lone Wood Stork there at the lake.
All of the geese and the stork, were browsing on the grassy shoreline next to the golf cart multi-modal path (and meandering on that very path!). Note that in breeding colors, the males have the strong black barring and are a lot brighter in color than the females.
