Happy Easter and day trip

I hope everyone had a great Easter. We went for a drive and then visited my mom. 2 of my nephews were there. One is a carnival worker and I only see him about once or so a year. Which is really nice as for years we didn't know if he was even alive. He ran away from home at 17or 18 and we thought we would never see him again. Then one of my brothers and sister-in-law showed up also. So it was a nice day.

There were hundreds of Tundra Swans in this field! Beautiful birds. Loud birds! From what I heard there were many more birds yesterday! Sorry for the bad picture. I had the zoom open all the way and it was windy. They were way back in a field so I was lucky to get a shot at all. My camera is old and 15X zoom.
They are such pretty birds. I don't know why I didn't know that a migration happens so close to me. It was only about 3/4 of an hour drive.
Of course almost anywhere that there is water there are geese. Coming in for a landing.
Look how much bigger the swan looks. We have only had snow/ice melt in the last week. These farm fields were really full of water. It is surprising that these field will be ready to plow in a couple of months.

Have a great week. Hugs, Teresa


  1. I hope your Easter was full of love, magic (and chocolate). I had not heard of Tundra Swans before - thank you so much. Such majestic birds, I loved them.

  2. Oh-We have lots of geese here, too...and the fields abound with them but we don't have swans....they are gorgeous. I am so glad that you got to see your nephew and know he is alive and well- xo Diana

  3. Lovely pictures of the fields and birds. So glad you had a great day.

  4. Nice pictures and thanks for sharing them. How wonderful to have your family around!

  5. Doesn't matter to me how close you can get, I love seeing the pic's of all the birds.


  6. I adore migration season. Its spectacular in natures way. I love the post below of your beloved beautiful dog. What an honor! She is a beauty and the timing is perfect with the weather changing in many parts of the country. Hugs. Tammy
