Full title A natural history of the ducks /

The Egyptian goose (Alopochen aegyptiaca) is a member of the duck, goose, and swan family Anatidae. Alopochen aegyptiaca is native to Africa south of the Sahara and the Nile Valley. Egyptian geese were considered sacred by the Ancient Egyptians, and appeared in much of their artwork. They have been raised for food and extensively bred in parts of Africa since they were domesticated by the ancient Egyptians.

The Orinoco goose (Neochen jubata) is a member of the duck, goose and swan family Anatidae. Neochen jubata is in the shelduck subfamily Tadorninae, and placed in the genus Neochen. Orinoco geese are resident breeders in the forests of tropical South America. Its preference is forest lakes or marshes with access to open woodland or savanna.
