These Egyptian Geese hang around our community all the time and visit the pond behind my home on a fairly regular basis. Don't know how birds native to north Africa made their way to Texas, but it's obviously an escaped domesticated group.

Lately, they've taken a liking to my chimney early in the morning. Kind of a neat living weathervane --

that is neat. And how great to have them so close to photograph :>)))

Never saw a Goose like that.

I bet they do face into the wind. LOLOL

Come to think of it, most birds to face into the wind. Don't they???. Interesting fact maybe. Good for shooting purposes.

Never thought of it. I will have to be more observant.

Thanks Gordon for the idea.

Well, in this case no wind was blowing - typical still morning. Usually don't see them up there on a windy day. BUT, for a nice change, they were facing the sun so I could get a good shot!! I've actually had neighbors stop by and ask me how I got them trained to sit up there! Now if I could just get them to stop making so much noise early in the morning!!
