Echo Park — The birds that frequent Echo Park Lake are mostly a common collection of ducks, geese and pigeons. But every once in a while a few birds stand out from the rest.

That’s the case with some of the birds spotted this past week at the lake. These include a gaggle of  Egyptian Geese — which resemble masked bandits — and a Crested Duck, which appears to be wearing a powder puff on its head.

Thanks to Judy Oroshnik for the photos.

  3. Thank you! I saw the Egyptian Geese the other day and wondered what kind of geese they were. Always exciting to see new birds around the park.
