Difference between a geese and a duck.
There has been confusion between ducks and geese for years. They do have severalsimilarities but they also have several differences. If you know all the differences they areeasy to tell apart. First you need to know the basic things about each bird. Then you willbe able to tell the difference.Geese are larger than ducks, but smaller than swans. Almost all breeds of goose arenative to water. Most species in the east are migratory. They breed in the north and flysouth for the winter. All geese are vegetarians. Geese are lifetime maters but sometimesthey will "divorce" and remate. They usually lay fewer eggs than ducks but both parentsprotect the eggs.
(Sibylle Faye)
 The main difference between ducks and geese are that geese are bigger. Ducks alsousually lay more eggs than geese. Ducks may be found in fresh or salt water. Ducks makea sound called a "quack". Male ducks molt in the summer so that they look like females.
They cannot fly during this time so they hide. Most breeds of duck are migratory. Inmany places ducks are hunted for food or sport.

Characteristics of ostrich and its meat
The ostrich is the largest of all birds and weighs about 150 kg. It also has a record of laying the largest eggs which are about 120 cm. long and 15 cm. in diameter. The ostrichis a flight-less bird. However, it is the fastest bird on legs with a speed of 80 kmph. It hasa peculiar habit of running round in circles.The ostrich is a native of Africa. The legs, which are two-toed, are long and strong and itslarge body seems precariously balanced on them. Its neck is lengthy and at the end of it isa small head with a short break. Its eyes are large with long eyelashes.The brain of the ostrich is smaller than its eyes but that does not mean it is a stupid bird.In fact, it is quite intelligent. Scientists no longer believe in the myth that the ostrichburies its head in the sand in times of danger. Instead it sits and stretches its neck alongthe sand.Ostriches are being farmed for their meat and beautiful feathers. Even their hide is usedto make good quality leather. In some places they are also trained to pull carts. Howeverdomesticating the ostrich is very difficult as it is a very aggressive bird. It attacks with avery powerful kick which can easily break ones bones. So farmers have to be very carefulwhen approaching it.Ostrich Meat is a red meat that is low in fat that can be used in any traditional red meatrecipe to produce great tasting dishes. Ostrich meat is a "red meat" similar in colour andtaste to beef. However, it is lower in fat grams per serving compared to chicken andturkey, and much lower in fat and cholesterol than beef. Most all of the meat from anOstrich comes from the leg, thigh, and back. An Ostrich has NO breast meat like thechicken and turkey.Even though Ostrich meat tastes like beef, the Ostrich does not have fat marbling in themeat like beef. Ostriches have fat, but it collects outside the muscles and is easilyremoved during processing. Therefore, the cuts of meat are very lean with very low fatcontent. Ideal for weight watchers who love red meat.
