"Sauvie Island and Scappoose Bottoms, Oregon ... January 11, 2012"
The Trip:    Gorgeous winter day ... went to Sauvie Island to look for Snow Geese, Sandhill Cranes, and perhaps the elusive Golden Eagle ... WRONG ... it was "hunting day" on the island and nary a Goose in sight ... we then headed over to Scappoose Bottoms to scope out the area as we'd never been there ... a very nice place ... and well worth the extra mileage as there was a GORGEOUS Rough-legged Hawk along side the road !!!!!!!!!
