Sorry folks, for some reason, some of my emails are taking a while before they reach the distribution (happened with the email I sent out about the eagle as well, took a couple days to be delivered...). This is the first email I sent out this afternoon, followed by a second one stating that the geese had flown away.
Evanston, Cook County, IL

Both snow geese still there, in the spot described by Amanda. 1:45 pm.
And now there are two. Nice opportunity to see a white and a blue Snow Goose side-by-side. 12:45 PM. Feeding together on the grass in channel park south of Touhy across from Planet Fitness. Visible from McCormick Blvd in a group of 50 Canada Geese.
Visible grin patch so this is not one of the previously reported Skokie/Evanston Rossís Geese
