Middle Creek Tundra Swans

While Snow Geese are the main late winter attraction at Middle Creek the Tundra Swan migrations is impressive as well.

The swans estimate the day of my visit was pegged at about 5000.  Here a group of swans lifts off at dawn for a day of foraging.

These graceful birds have since moved on; the memory of my wonderful day with the swans lives on in digital files.
