RELEASE OF SWANS
We have seen these swans in the fields almost every spring for the past 40 yrs in Dover township. They land where there is a body of water like marshes and flooded fields nearby. In the 60's my husband and I talked to a man that was tracking them and was from a Maryland University. He had a powerfull telescope and was trying to get a count on them. This was before the new tracking devices.
After they leave this area they travel on over Michigan and Wisconsin and then stage again in North Dakota, Manitoba and Saskatchewan, arriving up in the north for nesting in June.
SWANS IN FIELD
These two pictures of the swans in the field were taken March 25th out in Dover Township and they stretched from one road to the next. These pictures were only a small portion of the flock, and what looks like snow in the far distance is really swans.
