Curt, I was just there 15 minutes ago and it looks like the Ross's was back,
hanging with a flock of Canada Geese on the ballfield just east of the
Hopkins Pavillion.
I tried logging in to post it but everything's expired or gone cold on me,
if you want to pass the latest along.

Ross's goose not re-found this morning to early afternoon. I looked on the
hill described in the earlier post and in several areas around it where
other geese were seen. Many Canada geese, crow, and turkey vultures were
seen there.
I will try again later today.
