Can someone who lives near the Bay let me know if you have seen the swans yet....and where. I heard they're starting to show up, but with the Bay still ice covered, not sure where they're hanging out.
When I was out ice fishing Tuesday afternoon, I had about 5 different flocks fly over me. They were all flying East to West towards Port Burwell...they could be landing in open fields that our flooderd or the main lake.
Thanks. Kinda what I thought....they like those fields just North of Port Royal... They're back early, they tend to show up just a few days before the Bay opens up.....so all you guys still fishing, heads up!
Hey Polywog i saw the swans yesterday in one of there normal resting fields, there is a big bean field to the west of lakeshore rd it goes across to concession "A" there are almost always swans wadling around in there this time of year, it would have been a great photo oppertunity beause they were very close to the road. we had a few minuites to watch them at a very close range. Good luck
I had to go to St. Thomas for work this morning and I saw this huge group of swans on Pressy Road between Tburg and Springfield. I would say there was at least 200 birds and more kept coming. I watch 3 different groups land in about 5 mins. Its pretty amazing how they all meet up in the same spot. I also saw my first robin of 2011...Spring is officially here for me!
Awesome pictures Jwalsh,Thank-You for Sharing.I heard & then saw my first Robin fly above my Head just the other day,with a Red Tailed Hawk in hot pursuit right after the Robin.I hope the Robin made it to Safety.What a way to be greeted, after such a long Flight back from the South.I must agree,Spring Is Finally Here for me also!!8D
