A Swamphen lives among the reeds. When you startle it, it runs and hides within stalks of reeds. Its nest is a shallow cup of dry reeds. Its staple diet consists of tender young reeds which it uproots with its huge claws and eats like sugarcanes. And when courting , the male Swamphen woos a girl by again pulling out a fresh green reed and feeding it. And its prospects of mating too depend on its choice of reeds it plucks to feed.

A female Great Painted Snipe (Rostratula benghalensis) hunkers down on the edge of one of the Marievale Bird Sanctuary ponds. It is always special to come across these wetland nomads in Gauteng. #Snipe #conservation #wetland #bird #birdsanctuary #birdphotgraphy #instabird #birdsofinstagram #nomad #female #NatureNerd #TopShot #explore #birdlife_instabestbirdshots #birdlife #birdlife_sa #birdwatcher #birdphotography @birdlife_sa @birdlife_insta #Waterbirds

The Canada geese are wonderful to watch at Brittens Pond in Surrey , UK . Like most geese, the Canada goose is primarily herbivorous and normally migratory; it tends to be found on or close to fresh water.#”geese #geeseofinstagram #geeseofig #goose #feedinggeese #gander #pondlife #canadagoose #canadageese #waterbirds #geesefamily #gosling #geesefeeding
