Goosey goosey gander

I consider myself privileged to drive a length of the Liesbeek to work every day. Since all the heavy winter rain, the wetland has come alive with birds. I have seen pelicans, egrets, herons, cranes and of course the subject of this article the good old Egyptian Goose (Alopochen aegyptiacus)

Of course, as I always recommend, the WikiPedia is a great place to find more information on the Egyptian Goose

The geese in the photos that follow, carefully look after their five young. I have watched them grow up from tiny chicks to the ‘teenagers’ they are now.
