On Fri 12/4 and Sat 12/5, a greater white-fronted goose was feeding with the Canadas on the Green Lake golf course, obligingly close to the trail. Today (Sun 12/6), the golf course geese were too far for good viewing, although a few cacklers were easy to spot in the flock.

A few hundred yards further north, on the shore side of Green Lake Way, I followed a couple’s eyes about 20 feet up to a juvenile Cooper’s hawk, a female by its size, clasping a duck carcass, nothing left of it but keel and wings.
