Egyptian Goose

Egyptian Goose (Alopochen aegyptiaca), which is more closely related to shelducks than other geese, are indigenous to the eastern and southern parts of Africa and have been listed on the Invasive Species Compendium for North America. This species is also very popular in zoos and aviaries, in which they can escape and create wild populations outside of their home range. Wild Egyptian Goose populations in the United States are primarily found in Florida, Texas, and California and have also colonized in the Netherlands, Belgium, and Germany.
