A Peek Inside APGO Nest

A view from the inside of this African pygmy goose nest. The nest cavity was selected by both the male and female. While she incubates this clutch of 9 eggs, which is the typical clutch size, the male stands guard on the outside, often perched atop the cavity. An interesting tidbit about this pair is the male’s tendency to fly at an unsuspecting staff member’s head in defense of the nest. This is an uncommon trait among our pairs here. This is one of several African pygmy goose nests of the season and while we never count our pygmy geese before they hatch, we are anticipating a great season with this species.
