Tundra Swan Swimming in Timmins

Once again Lynn has provided us with a great photo of a bird visiting Timmins. The tundra swan is very cool to see, but her pictures of the Wimbrel are really special. See previous entry.

The tundra swan is a frequent visitor to Timmins over the years, since we are on the migration path. This one was seen swimming at Kraft Creek. map I always like to hear about sightings in Timmins and area and I add them to the Observations Naturally webpage

The mute swan is also on the Timmins Checklist of the Birds, listed as an accidental. It has been on the list for many years and I do not know the details around the sighting.

Thanks Lynn
