Swans and A Crane

    The waterfowl are beginning to stop in at Horseshoe Lake as they take a rest during their migration.  The lake itself is still mostly frozen and so they can be found in the many pools of water that have formed from the snowmelt.  
    I always have a hard time figuring out what birds I am seeing so I end up taking a zoomed in photo then when I get the photo into my computer and can blow it up, I can see what it was that I saw.  The large white birds in the photo above are Tundra Swans. 
    The photo below shows a Sandhill Crane winging its way to the lake.  Some Sandhills do stay during the summer and nest in the Robson Valley.

Take a look at my paintings if you have time:
