    Yes, they winter here and nest on tundra ponds.

    Your shot of these Tundra Swans is incredible…otherworldly! Wonderful work. Where can I find these birds?

    Thanks, Maureen, these were photographed at Primehook National Wildlife Refuge just about a week ago.

    I’ve seen them in Smyrna at Lake Como and Duck Creek Pond, not far from Bombay Hook.

    Your picture of the Tundra Swans gives me goosebumps.
    I can’t find the words to describe the beauty of these breathtaking animals.
    As an amateur painter and art academy student it’s my plan to make a number of large paintings of swans for my graduation project .
    I would like to ask your permission to use your picture as an inspiration.

    greetings from Holland,
    Geertje
