Goin’ North

These trumpeter swans had just taken off from M’Clintock Bay on Marsh Lake. The appearance of large numbers of swans and other migratory aquatic birds is much celebrated as it heralds the arrival of spring to this part of the world. During their northward migration these birds stage in this location known as Swan Haven, as well as at other places where the ice melts early off shallow water where they can feed on the bottom vegetation.
