"Heron Lakes Golf Course, Portland, Oregon ... January 1, 2012"
The Trip:    Chilly winter day, overcast with the sun popping out now and then ... went to the Herons Lakes Golf Course late afternoon to photograph the Brant and the Snow Goose which have been hanging out there ... looked for a Glaucous Gull which also has been seen there but no luck on the Gull ... nice views of a "speckled" Cackling Goose and an immature Snow Goose ... Heron Lakes Gold Course is located behind Portland's Expo Center, just south of Hayden Island, Portland, Oregon.
