Tundra Like Weather
They are predicting a 1/2 inch of ice by morning and we are already starting to see some mixed perception coming down. If we do get the predicted ice storm . . . expect my power and phone lines to be out (with no internet)! Ugg, lets hope the weather man is wrong! ! Today I heard some very familiar trumpet like calls “klooo . . . kwooo . . .” and I knew it was only a matter of time till these guys started pushing through the area (my first for 2008 – CHECK)!
I located these swans out in the middle of Red House Lake and boy were they making a ruckus. It didn’t take them long before getting settled down, started preening their feathers and then tucked their heads under their wing (started sleeping). My guess is that these were some extremely exhausted birds after migrating all day and night yesterday. I saw a larger flock of Tundra’s following the Allegheny River about an hour later and they seemed to be trying to push through the storm. I would anticipate that for the next month they will continue pushing through the area . . . . so expect some more photos here soon!
