His shoes are purple

The Egyptian goose opts for a coat of many hues. A palette of white, black, bronze and midnight blue on a buff base makes this ornamental bird as exotic as its African origins.

WE like March, his shoes are purple,
He is new and high;
Makes he mud for dog and peddler,
Makes he forest dry;
Knows the adder’s tongue his coming,
And begets her spot.
Stands the sun so close and mighty
That our minds are hot.
News is he of all the others;
Bold it were to die
With the blue-birds buccaneering
On his British sky.
Emily Dickinson

last but no means least (and I doubt that he wears purple shoes) is the straight from the lens, quintessential native blogger :  Stephen G Hipperson
