reports:

As of 2 PM Tuesday, there were seven greater white-fronted geese on the grounds of the U.S. Geological Survey research center on New Haven Road in southeast Columbia (east of Route AC exit on US 63).

These birds were loafing next to one of the experimental ponds on the right side of the road before you get to the main USGS complex.  They were on a pond between the road and the small gray building that is in the middle of the pond complex.  Access to this area is restricted, but the birds should be easily visible from the shoulder of the road -- just watch out for traffic!
