Tundra Swans


Migrating Tundra Swans on a stop over in Alymer Ontario, Canada to refuel, on their way to the high Arctic Region between Alaska and Baffin Island to breed. Thousands of the magnificent birds arrive in early March to rest before continuing migration.

Yesterday we visited the Aylmer Wildlife Management Area, where it was estimated that there were approximately 5,000 swans there already. Between 10,000 and 60,000 birds will come and go from this area over the next 3 week period.

Stay tuned for more pix that I will post during the week.

  8. I thought of a swan as delicate and fragile. Looking at Tundra Swan they look like tough ^_^ Thanks for the visit.
