Hi Tweeters,

I just got back from checking out Renton Longacres Pond from about 11:45-12:30.  I found the Cackling Goose flock on the north side of the ponds feeding on grass, but neither I nor several other birders there saw any Ross's.  I also walked around the ponds, and checked some grassy fields off to the southeast without seeing any other geese.  There's a lot of open space in the general area so they could easily be hiding somewhere though!

Note that the map Doug Schurman linked to maps the ponds location incorrectly - they are on the east side of Longacres Drive.  I parked at the south end of this drive before the gates - I think it's legal parking even though it's on Boeing Property b/c I didn't see any signs saying it was restricted, but don't hold me to that!!

Good birding,
Evan Houston
Seattle, WA
