In the Egyptian goose (Chenalopex) the beak closely resembles that of the common duck; but the lamellae are not so numerous, nor so distinct from each other, nor do they project so much inward; yet this goose, as I am informed by Mr.
Bartlett, "uses its bill like a duck by throwing the water out at the corners.
" Its chief food, however, is grass, which it crops like the common goose.
