While sitting under a tree at the Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens these two came to within two meters from me.
An Egyptian goose
A Spur Fowl hen
However this Guinea fowl kept its distance up high in a tree
Enjoy a lovely day.
That’s the first time I’ve seen an Egyptian goose… and it does look just as the ancient Egyptians painted it. Thank you 🙂
We have plenty of them here in our suburb.
It is nice to see them. It sounds quite silly, but I never thought to look them up…just accepted artistic licence on the part of the ancients.
