My Sunday Photo: Ramses and Nefertari

Ramses and Nefertari, two fine examples of Egyptian Geese, showed up in my backyard yesterday.

“Ay oh whey oh, ay oh whey oh
Walk like an Egyptian.”


I could also link this to Jude’s ‘March Wildlife Garden Photography Challenge’, but maybe she’s getting tired of seeing so many of my visitors. 🙂

Wishing you all a sunny Sunday.


Oh, when the geese come marching in.

In May we had two Egyptian geese show up in our backyard,


and what a lot of noise they made, even trying to wake Mr. A from his slumbers on the bank opposite.


They stayed around for about an hour and then flew away never to be seen again until a couple of days ago, when the whole tribe arrived to check out the resort. They looked so funny just standing there staring out across the water.


These two, probably the same ones who were here in May, appeared to be the tour guides.


“Follow us, and don’t forget to ‘walk like an Egyptian’,” they honked, as they all marched away towards the golf course to inspect the rest of the facilities.


I haven’t seen them again, so maybe they decided to try out all the country clubs around here, before making up their minds which one they want to join.
