Hi! Thanks for the spotting and thank you for adding this to the South Dakota wildlife mission. Keep up the great spottings!

I just read Aarons comment (Branta canadensis) is the scientific name if you need it.

Hi there. Since you know the identity of your spotting, please go ahead and fill in the scientific name field. This allows the spotting to fully enter the database and become complete, letting groups and individuals to use the data and find your spotting. It also takes the spotting off the "unidentified" list. Thank you!

Here's a great Project Noah blog entry that explains the spotting process:
