Re: Ross's Goose at Eisenhower Park
- The Ross's Goose seems to be a year-round resident. I saw it in December, and it's been there ever since. Fairly tame & confiding, gets fed by people all the time. I believe Doug Willick reported the same bird a few months ago.
Since Eisenhower has been mentioned... there used to be two very large trees across the street from the park on Canal Street where dozens of Turkey Vultures roosted... well, not anymore. About two months ago or so those very big, mature trees were cut down. I was wondering if anyone knows where the Turkey Vultures are roosting now.

> Not sure how notable this is, but I saw a Ross's Goose (seemed quite a bit smaller than a Snow Goose) at Eisenhower Park in Orange (Tustin and Lincoln) today. I've never seen one there before, and it seems to be the wrong time of year... It's hanging out at the "lake" with the mallards and other assorted geese.
