Heard Tundra Swans migrating at night

(Cheektowaga, NY)

William, one of our readers in New York State, sent us this report - At approximately 12:30 am, March 10 2010, I was listening to the nocturnally migrating birds and heard a flock of Tundra Swans passing overhead.


This was near the Buffalo-Niagara International Airport in Cheektowaga, NY. They sounded to be at quite a good altitude, above 3000ft and were moving to the north.

Thank you William, it's good to know that the Tundra Swans are on their way here - they should be arriving in Southern Ontario any time now!

I heard them too
by: Elsie

I have heard the swans as they fly overhead - last week I was outside for a few minutes to get something out of my car, and when I looked up I saw a large flock of swans flying overhead. At first I thought they were geese, but they were white with longer necks, and they made a sound which was unlike geese.

This is the first time I have ever heard the swans as they migrate, although I have seen them in Aylmer and Long Point on several occasions.
