Sky Watch - Heralding Spring

I took this series of photos just north of town where farms and fields stretch in all directions. High above me were the Trumpeter Swans. This is the annual spring migration, and these amazing birds have already travelled far, en route to Alaska and their summer nesting areas. They will grace our skies for a mere few weeks before instinct tells them that it is time to leave.
