A run down to Bear Island with Sharon Brown on Friday afternoon was
successful in finding swans but not a Trumpeter Swan. Two groups of Swans
came in to Mary's Pond about 5:30 PM, eventually totalling 26 swans, and all
were verifiably Tundra Swans. This was much less than the 70+ swans we
found last weekend, but as Sharon Brown said, "They have the entire ACE
Basin to fly around in." Many of the plantations down there manage for wild
geese and ducks and would likely be more attractive to waterfowl. Well, no
matter. Any time spent looking at swans closely and listening to swans
gabble is time well spent.
Among the almost unusual birds found down there on Friday afternoon were a
Wood Stork, five American White Pelicans, one Common Tern, good numbers of
Bonaparte's Gulls and Forster's Terns and numerous White Ibis.
