The EMPEROR GOOSE was apparently seen today between 1 pm and 2 pm near a
Rentenaar Road. I just read this on the Oregon Birding Facebook page.
Unfortunately, it sounds like it flew west.
From Kate Atkins:
“Bird continues per Tom Magarian, Rentenaar Rd. from about 1300-1400, flew
I spent about an hour and a half looking from the dike at the end of
Rentenaar Rd. yesterday evening. While I was not able to relocate the EMGO,
I did luck upon seeing a BRANT flying around at one point, also flying west.
Good luck to those that chase,
