Subject: Greater White-Fronted Geese, Spartanburg
A pair of Greater White-Fronted Geese were present today at Kale Lake, just
north of the USC Upstate campus, along with a large flock of Canada Geese.
There are also Pied-Billed Grebe, Mallard, Ring-Necked Duck, Hooded
Merganser, and Ruddy Duck on the lake, but the geese were keeping generally
together. The smaller size and brown neck generally made them easy to spot
among the Canadas, though binocs were needed to see the white front. They
obligingly got out of the lake to graze, showing the dark belly markings.
Pepperidge Drive, off of Tenosha Drive, provided the best views.
