Tundra Swans Flying In

Waves of Tundra Swans flew into Mary’s House Pond at Bear Island, where the sky was cloudy to the south.

I heard them but didn’t spot them until they had gone by. They did a small loop closer to me but then banked away.

I caught this group approaching from the north, where the skies had cleared.

This one put his landing gear out long before the actual touch down, which ended up being on the far side of the pond.

    1. Yes, indeed! A flock of around 300 Tundra Swans has been wintering in the area of this WIldlife Management Area for decades. It is reported that they first came with some Canada Geese, liked it, and kept coming back. We saw them last week but I wouldn’t be surprised if they have headed north.
