The two Ross's Geese reported by Kayo Roy were still
in the area today at noon. They were on the eastern
shore of the Welland River near the parking lot for
Merritt Island, at the end of Cross St. N. which runs
off East Main St. in downtown Welland.

Full directions as per Kayo Roy:
Directions: From the Queen Elizabeth, take Highway 406
south at St. Catharines to the very end of the highway
where it T's on to East Main Street. Turn right and
proceed 3 or 4 lights to Hellems Ave (bus terminal on
corner). Turn right here and go 100 yards or so to the
river. Start looking for the two birds here among the
several hundred Canada's and other varied waterfowl
that are present. If not observed, go right onto
Dorothy Street and then a quick left onto River Road.
Continue north on River Road checking for the birds
every so often. There are several good pull-offs along
the way. Reaching this area from the south or west is
a fair bit tricky because East Main Street is a
one-way street running west. I would suggest any
Buffalo/Fort Erie birders take the QEW north to
Netherby Road, go west (left) on Netherby to Highway
140, and take 140 north (right) to the lights at East
Main Street. Turn left here, go under the Welland
Canal tunnel, then follow as above. From Port
Colborne, take Highway 140 north and follow as above.
