The Lookout



I seem to be starting an unintentional Egyptian Goose series. This one was standing lookout ... perhaps just relaxing, or maybe there was a nest nearby. We saw him on a bike ride just outside of Wassenaar, on the Valkenburgsmeer. Normally we see a lot of windsurfers on this body of water, but perhaps the impending rain kept them away on this day.

Good photo, most times they fly away if you stop to make a photo.

I like wildlife so I like this photo of the Goose. I am guessing he or she is keeping watch. I don't know the species that well but there are a lot of birds who perch on high places so they can see around the area without having to waste a lot of energy flying.

I like the photo and your post today.
