[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note

Egyptian geese are characterized by brown patches encircling each eye and a brown patch on the chest. They are very attractive during light due to the white and iridescent colors on the underneath side of the wings. It's difficult to distinguish males from females by appearance, but you may be able to tell by listening. Males produce a missing sound while females make a honking sound. Height: (25 - 29 in) Weight: (3 - 5 lbs)

Lifespan: 7 years

Range: Found throughout most of Africa, south of the sahara. Now rapidly coming to North America.
