Observation details

Was associating with the Canada Geese. Chestnut eye patches surrounding yellow eye. Brown chest patch. Pink legs and feet. Large portion of wing is white, but hidden when the bird is at rest. When researching online, it states "These old world shelducks were domesticated by the ancient Egyptians". Was thinking about selecting domestic, but this was the only option. In Florida there is evidence of nesting Egyptian Goose.
