Because the Robson Valley is part of the flyway for many birds traveling north, we get to see a lot of birds that don’t actually live here. They fly in, take a rest, and then head on to points north. When we passed the marshy area long Hwy. 16 between the Fraser River and the McBride townsite, we spotted some swans taking advantage of the water.
You can get some idea of their size, by comparing them to the small ducks and the Canadian geese in the photo.
