Wiki on Egyptian Geese:

This is a largely terrestrial species, which will also perch readily on trees and buildings. ….

This species will nest in a large variety of situations, especially in holes in mature trees in parkland.

The female builds the nest from reeds, leaves and grass, and both parents take turns incubating

eggs. [8] Egyptian geese usually pair for life. Both the male and female care for the offspring until they

are old enough to care for themselves. [13]
