On our way back from a road trip along the Mississippi River we drove through Prescott, Wisconsin. As we crossed the Saint Croix River we noticed a group of Trumpeter Swans in the open water below Point Douglas Park.

With the warm weather and more open water it appears the Trumpeter Swans have begun to disperse from their wintering grounds.

The water was at just the right depth so they could feed on the bottom of the river.

    Wonderful! I love the swan butts. They are funny creatures. I never realized how much personality they have. I checked out the spot you mentioned, and it was great, thanks. It was misty and all very muted, but I got a few keepers. https://lettersfromchurchofthetoastedcoconutdoughnut.wordpress.com/2016/02/22/swan-swan-goose/
