We stopped in Hudson, Wisconsin to check on the Trumpeter Swans that winter on the St. Croix River. I has been warm and there were fewer swans than we typically see. We did notice open water out in the river and there were quite a few swans on the Minnesota side of the river. That group was particularly active and I was able to capture some photos of them landing near me.

The Mallard Ducks were also active. I captured this sequence of photos as one landed in the water near me.

I also captured a sequence of photos of a Mallard Duck taking a bath then exiting the water.
