The Ross's Goose is currently feeding with a loose group of about 7 Canada Geese. I am currently watching it from 7th St S west of 11th Ave S on a grassy slope south of 7th St. This is in Hopkins, Hennepin County, MN. It is quite a distance from the road right now on private property, the large hill/development site south of the road. The group has moved up the hill but mostly stayed in the same spot for the last 20 minutes or so.
To get to this location if you go east on 5th St from the previous location you need to go to the end of the road, go south two blocks on 11th Ave S and then turn west on 7th St S which is a dead-end street.
