Forgive my inexperience, I find this Forum difficult to navigate as the dates are inconsistent. Several of my fellows in the US are very concerned about the lone Egyptian Goose that has spent day and night either in the water or on shore. Is this typical behavior? Has it lost it's mate? Is it ill? Is it 'courting'? Reassure us please.
Concerned about Goose
I was watching him too. I think he was fine. Hard telling why he hung around so long though. Maybe he was waiting for that "special someone." There was quite a discussion about him on the Watering Hole thread...but nobody was overly concerned about his well being, so that was comforting. He eventually flew away...maybe he'll be back someday with a date!
