Tuesday Photo Challenge – Unusual

There are two unusual visitors at Laguna Lake by our home. The first time I saw them was in January 2017. They looked like exotic birds, but I didn’t know what kind of birds they were. Eventually, one blogger helped me identify them. They are Egyptian Geese. The Egyptian goose is a member of the duck, goose, and swan family Anatidae. It is native to Africa south of the Sahara and the Nile Valley. Egyptian geese were considered sacred by the Ancient Egyptians and appeared in much of their artwork. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Egyptian_goose

They are not regular residents of Laguna Lake. I thought they were transient visitors, but I saw them coming back two times since January. Do they have a regular home? It is a mystery about these exotic Egyptian geese!
