While we gathered and waited for the sunset shots I shared with you Friday, we had fun watching a family of Mute Swans emerge from the marsh and swim down the lake. Apparently they do this every evening.
Our hosts would say 'Just another beautiful evening on the lake'.
Swan Migration - Thanks to David's comments, let me clarify, that Mute Swans do 'migrate' short distances in southern Ontario to avoid ice in the winter, flying to areas of open water. In my experience locally, you'll find a pair where the Beaver River empties into Georgian Bay in Thornbury and the flowing water at the river mouth stays open all year. Trumpeter Swans, as David says, were reintroduced in Wye Marsh near Midland, but fly to Lake Ontario for the winter, so you may see the odd few 'migrating' through with the larger flocks of Tundfa Swans in the spring. Tundra Swans are the stars of the migration show, arriving in southern Ontario in large flocks in late March, on their way north.
