Greater White-fronted Goose - Anser albifrons (02May2015)

Colloquially known as the "specklebelly", the Greater White-fronted Goose is good bird in North Carolina.  They are usually seen every year, but are few and far in between.  So when I received a report of a fairly tame specklebelly at Bur-Mil Park in Greensboro, I was on it like  cheap suit.

Of course this was my old camera, so I can only improve my shots of this species although this bird was especially confiding.

I can see the reason for the name.  I don't think domestics have the same belly patterns.
