I was at a manmade lake in Irvine in the planned community of Woodbridge today with my sisters and while paddling in a canoe, my sister pointed out these geese to me and said that they were agressive mean geese... ready to defend the geese, thinking they were just africans or maybe chinese-the sort I generally see at parks with ponds-I noticed these birds looked very different and very small. WHen we got closer I saw the vivid colors and strange patternization around the eyes and was amazed that there were egyptian geese on the bank of this manmade lake in Irvine! There were 5 of them and they were quite small, had no keels whatsoever and had very long pink legs. I've never seen an egyptian goose in person before so I was very excited to see their beautiful plumage up close... We got about 5 feet away in the canoe and they started loudly hissing and stood their ground, my sister said they normally scream if you walk near them. Here are a few shots of them; It was such a strange thing to see this particular goose at a park here. They are generally very hard to get a hold of in the first place from a hatchery.
