"Vancouver Lake Lowlands, Vancouver, Washington ... October 10 and 18, 2013"
The Trips:    The 10th was overcast with slight drizzle ... went out to Vancouver Lake Lowlands to find the Ross's Goose and Snow Goose which was reported yesterday in a flock of 25,000 Cacklers ... no luck on the Ross's but the Snow Goose was there, along with at least 2 Greater White-fronted Geese ... but what was most impressive was the flock of 25,000 Cacklers !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ... UPDATE: five days later the same birder went back out and then estimated there were 100,000 Cacklers !!!!!! ... numbers have gone down since then ... on October 18 we went back out and Cackler numbers were only in the low thousands ... also stopped at Vancouver Lake and LaFrambois Road.
