Tundra Swans
and American Wigeons
April 2006

By the Toftree pond, I'm accustomed to tundra swans flying far overhead during spring migration.

  And sometimes they fly closer . . . but overhead.

So it was a very happy time for me, in mid-March, when as many as sixty swans used the pond as a stopover.

On the extreme right of the photo is a male American wigeon (duck with a white stripe on his forehead), and on the extreme left is a female American wigeon.

Photo note: I used a Pentax *ist D, with the SMC 400-600mm reflex lens for these photos.
