We left our house around 9 am this morning to look for those migrating tundra swans. First stop was a wild life refuge near Winona (I don’t remember the name.) NO SWANS.
Leaving Winona, we soon spotted some swans in the river next to the highway. We took a U-turn and parked the car by the roadside and took a few photos.
Next stop: Mississippi River National Wildlife & Fish Refuge. The lady told us someone had seen 400 swans two days ago, so we walked .3 miles (good thing it wasn’t too cold today) to the observation deck. NO SWANS.
That lady also told us Brownsville had thousands of them. After eating a quick lunch (and pick up some wines since WI’s wine tax is lower), we headed to Brownsville. No SWAN and NO SWAN! My husband finally said, “Two more miles, if we don’t see them, we are going home!” I agreed.
But, at the last minute, We saw them. Thousands of them!
They were LOUD! They were incredible! And it was getting colder and colder…
Maybe I will go back tomorrow. Maybe.
