Greater White-fronted Geese

Great White-fronted geeseI am a lucky enough to live near the Biltmore Estate. Sure the house is beautiful, but I really like to walk the grounds. The gardens are well tended and I always find something to photograph and something I hadn’t seen before. Every visit is different.

I enjoy walking around the lagoon, a large pond with many Canada Geese, various ducks, a Great Blue Heron, a Green Heron, and recently I saw a new bird  – the Greater White-Fronted goose. In the photo you can see that they are smaller than the Canada goose and how they got their name.  They were likely on their way, as the following week I did not see them.
