Tundra Swans are slowly arriving on the Mendocino Coast

Tundra Swans, Cygnus columbianus, overwinter on the floodplains of the Garcia River. Last year, with our drier than normal winter, brought just a handful of these beautiful white swans. Eight were spotted last week. Richard Kuehn photographed four Tundra Swans in flight recently, always a thrilling sight.

We hope to have hundreds in residence soon. Thanks to Rich for allowing me to share his photo with you here.
