Migrating Tundra Swans

Maurice, one of our readers, sent us this report of his sighting of Tundra Swans - I saw several "V" shaped formations of huge white birds flying overhead at about 9:30 this morning, Thursday March 11, 2010.

Since they were quite high up I could not identify them for sure, but I believe they were Tundras.

They were bigger than Canada Geese and their calls were louder than Canada Geese. They flew overhead where I live, in Tillsonburg Ontario.

I was unable to capture the sight on digital. So you'll just have to beleive what I say I saw!

Thanks Maurice, it is a lovely sight to see isn't it? Tundra Swans in their beautiful "V" formation. Thank you for your report.

Here is a YouTube video - I took this yesterday, March 11 2010, not far from where you are - Aylmer Wildlife Management Area.
