Egyptian geese can be extremely aggressive and territorial during breeding season and will frequently pursue trespassers into the air. So unless you want to engage in an aerial feather fight, you better drop the camera and step away from the goose.
Spent a fantastic afternoon with big city birds - pigeons, geese, ducks and a crow. The nine Egyptian Goose goslings, only a few days old and extremely early heralds of spring, were especially delightful to watch. Just look at their pretty grey-brown eyes that will change to a bright orange when they have reached adulthood. I spotted them and their parents wandering around a small lake in the city in the middle of the night and came back the next day (a sunny day, hehe) for a photo shoot. :-)
