I happened to be chatting with a friend yesterday, over coffee at a little coffee shop; we'd gone out looking for the snowy owl before, and then I thought of the swans that come through, so we went out to look, and sure enough, there's a gathering of swans in the field pond by the highway! I counted 40.
(I like to be able to look back and see how the seasons go, and it looks like this is about average for swan sightings. I did see them in March of 2010, looks like. But other years, it's been April. It's cool to be able to use a searchable blog to think about seasonal stuffs.)
