The Ross's Goose was present this afternoon at 3:30PM near the golf course in Theodore Wirth Park.  This was North of the location that Alyssa saw it so it moves around a bit.

 Today, my boyfriend and I re-found
 the juvenile Ross's Goose reported by
 Claudia Egelhoff in Theodore Wirth Park (in Minneapolis). We
 observed the
 bird associating with Canada Geese the entire time we were
 (12:20pm-12:30pm) on Wirth Lake. We were able to get close
 looks at its
 stubby bill.
 The place where we saw the goose was just north of the
 parking lot with the
 boat ramp. To get here, go east of the Wirth Beach Park on
 Glenwood Avenue.
 There should be a small turn off on the north side of the
 road. It has a
 small wooden sign that says "Picnicking and Fishing."
 I tried for the Hopkins Ross's Goose four times last month.
 It was nice to
 see this one on my first try! Thanks Claudia for reporting.
 Good birding!
