Tundra Swan Stopover

While I was scanning the lake at Peace Valley, 13 Tundra Swans flew in and landed across the lake. I watched them hop out of the water up onto some of the last of the ice on the lake. By the time I had driven around to the other side, they were all up on the ice and napping.

Spring is here and birds are on their way north!

Ice? Jeez, it's 75 bloody degrees down here Rob.

Hey Andy, we're just lucky to have a tiny bit of remaining ice. I just talked to a friend of mine in Missoula--they got 10 more inches of snow last night. Sheesh!

The nutter in me misses the white stuff especially in July when it's been as hot as balls since March!

Too much time living in Texas for me. I can more easily abide the heat, a long winter starts to get to me.
