Cambridge Tundra Swans
by Christine Auchinleck
Today is March 11th and I saw a flock of, what I thought were, Geese coming from a distance. I remarked to my dog, "Oh, the Geese are back!" (not that they all actually leave the area most winters)
As they got closer I noticed that the typical Goose sound was a little *off* and then took a closer look, squinting against the bright sun...they were all white!
Their wingspan and necks were longer than a Goose, though I couldn't make out much more than that.
After a bit of research, I realized they must be Tundra Swans!
It was the first time I'd ever seen so many ..... 15 birds? More?
