The bald eagles here in northern Utah have been very few. I decided to try and photograph the swans that were resting at the Bear River Bird refuge. On one of the days it was raining, which were very few, was my day to visit. It rained the entire drive until I arrived at the spot. Suddenly, the rain stopped and the swans started to move from one pond to the other. I was very fortunate.
`After viewing these amazing animals I had to do a little research on them. Among all these beautiful animals you can pick out variations even while they are in flight.
During winter and migration, look for the swans in plowed cornfields or wetlands. Also check lakes, ponds, and marshes where they roost and bathe along shorelines and in open water.
