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.
Thanks!

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!

I saw many flocks of them and geese this morning coming across the lake. I think Big Creek is open so that is probably where they are.

Spring is almost here!

There are lots of swans,geese and ducks using the mouth of Big Creek. The noise at night is incredible. Big Creek is slowly opening up the Bay.

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 :D

Big Dave your right that field is always a pretty good spot, and if not there out at the police college where they get fed is also a good place, too bad it's not as good for geese in the fall.[:(!]

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!

Great Pic's. Jwalsh. I bet seeing these birds in the air especially at dusk would be dramatic. Huron.

There were literally hundreds of swans in a variety of fields around Townsend. A real sign of spring!
