Egyptian Geese

A strange looking trio of birds dropped by the other day to visit the two little ponds near where we live. We didn't recognize them, but we realized that they were the size of the Canadian Geese we used to see up north on Long Island NY. So, checking the internet (they weren't in any of our bird books either), we found that they are Egyptian Geese. Not native to the U.S., but now roaming around Florida in pairs or groups, probably having escaped from petting farms. They certainly are not afraid of humans as evidenced by their bold walk out of the water right toward me - looking for food most likely.
