"Force Lake, Portland, Oregon ... November 3 and 15, 2013"
   (and Heron Lakes Golf Course, Vanport Wetlands, and Delta Park)
The Trip:    November 3 ... Overcast gray drizzly day ... stopped at Force Lake just to see what's there. Also drove through Heron Lakes Golf Course, past Vanport Wetlands, and through Delta Park. Nothing much there. Gull species and a juvenile Bald Eagle seen on/over the golf course, one big white Swan on Vanport Wetlands (seen from driving by, didn't stop to check it out), and a soccer match at Delta Park made that place birdless. ... November 15 ... another overcast, gray and drizzly day ... went out however to see if the Redhead which had been reported there was still there ... nope, not there.
