Lone Goose

Greater White-fronted Goose

Greater White-fronted Goose

Although we have thousands of greater white-fronted geese (Anser albifrons) wintering near our home in Big Valley CA (Modoc County), I do not recall ever seeing one at Baum Lake (Shasta County CA) before. This lone greater white-fronted goose was among the Canada geese recently swimming on Baum Lake. A distinctive white band around the base of its bill, not the color of its breast, gives the white-fronted goose its name.
