These unique Egyptian Geese (Alpochen aegyptiaca) birds were considered sacred by Eyptians. Americans imported them as decor for Golf Courses. Were our own wildlife too ugly or boring? Some have now vacated the golf courses for the wild.
This family was at the animal rescue facilities of Flamingo Gardens in Davie Florida. They are in the Rookery section which is open so they could wander if wanted. Many of their birds are not able to be released because of injury or “imprinting” (taming by people), so would not survive in the wild. Any animal that does recover is released as soon as it’s health returns.
I never tire of seeing new miracles of God’s designs. So amazing.
I’ll share their name (kind) and parents in the next post. But these CUTE little babies were enjoying their freedom in the Rookery rich with Duckweed. We were enjoying watching them while exploring Flamingo Gardens in Davie, Florida.
This was an act of patience and luck! It is unmanipulated. A new favorite of mine.
The Pelicans are waiting patiently for a fisherman to drop some bait. They are young, thus their brownish colors. These were sitting on the rail of Anglin’s Pier in Lauderdale by the Sea, allowing me to capture some images. They are amazing creatures to observe. I was able to get close enough to capture the details in the feather patterns.
