"Smith and Bybee Lakes, Force Lake, Portland, Oregon ... September 25, 2013"
The Trip:    Went out to Smith and Bybee Lakes just to see what what there ... we hoped we'd find the Snowy Egret as he's still hanging around ... no such luck ... did have nice views of Lesser Yellowlegs on Smith Lake however ... then drove to Force Lake where there was a very co-operative Green Heron ... while we were there a single Greater White-fronted Goose flew in.
