My point in all this, I'm not sure we have always had the same 2 birds here all the time. Will the real Egyp and Tian please stand up!

PS: I asked about those dark spots on the Saddleback Stork also and was informed that it is a marking that occurs during mating season, so, it isn't always there.

You know, Auntie, I believe you've caught something! Unless the male's plumage changes during mating season? The first pic, appears to be two females or a mature female and a young male?

I believe the pair named Egyp and Tian were a bonded pair, male and female.

Or, rather, Pha and Roah? Spelling is not my long suit. :oops:

I agree. Coloring is different, and only one pair has a member with a dark spot in the middle of his/her chest. I think that there are at least two pairs of geese. Egyp and Tian (the pair with the dark-spotted chest) and Phah and Ro?
