"Force Lake and Heron Lakes Golf Course, Portland, Oregon ... February 1, 2016"
The Trip:    Cold overcast day ... went out to see if we could find the Greater White-fronted Geese which had been seen there this morning. No luck. Lots of ducks on Force Lake and a large flock of Mew Gulls at Heron Lakes.
