[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Egyptian Geese are very pugnacious and aggressive, especially during breeding season. They are intolerant of other birds including individuals of their own kind and are among the most vicious of all waterfowl.

Essentially terrestrial, they spend considerable time ashore and are at ease on land. They feed both night and day, often long distances from water. They are good swimmers and dive extremely well.
