On a gray Tuesday afternoon as I was driving along Bay Shore Street in Marinette, WI, I noticed a good-sized flock of white birds in the bay of Green Bay. At first I thought they were just seagulls; however, as I looked closer, they seemed to be to large for seagulls. I stopped and followed a private dock that sticks well out into the bay and was surprised to find a huge number of swans! I took 29 photos at two different times during the afternoon. Upon looking at the photos when I got home (with the help of the Internet) I discovered that these appear to be Tundra Swans (very similar to a Trumpeter Swan). According to the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, Tundra Swans stay in flocks except when breeding. There were at least 60 swans in this group! What follows are all 29 photos that I took of this spectacular group of birds. I assume they are migrating.
