rose :: hips

swan :: song

Remember a few weeks back where we went on an road trip that took us into Iowa and Minnesota?  We left the hawks and headed on down the road and came upon this place.  These are Tundra Swans and they stop here on the river to rest while they travel to the place where they spend the winter months.

If you look close you can see a pair of eagles sitting together on the rivers bank in the photo below.

I got a total charge out of the ducks looking for food.

Hunting for food

I overheard some people talking that there would be more swans coming to stop and rest here.  We had hoped to get back here, but it just didn't work out, I'm pretty sure they have already all come and gone.
