Egyptian Goose

Alopochen aegyptiacus

Description:

The sexes of this striking species are identical in plumage, though the males average slightly larger. There is a fair amount of variation in plumage tone, with some birds greyer and others browner, but this is not sex or age related. A large part of the wings of mature birds is white, but in repose the white is hidden by the wing coverts.

Habitat:

This is a largely terrestrial species, which will also perch readily on trees and buildings.
