In the Post Crescent, you may be wondering…where do I go to see
Best links for finding swans include:
Hotspot: Lower Mud Lake
in McFarland. Yahara River generally makes this one
of the first shallow lakes to open in the spring. Recent trip reports from this
past week indicate a high diversity of waterfowl including Tundra Swans and
most species of diving ducks.

Easter Sunday evening in 2 field ponds near hwy DM and Harvey Rd Southern
3/31/2013 8:24:10 PM We saw several swans along
with plenty of sandhills at KK and Bowers Road in Milton.
Burnett County - The Grantsburg area…swans
and geese are visible in open rivers.
Fond du Lac County - Looks like spring might
actually come with the recent return of the sandhill cranes, swans, and
migrating geese and ducks.
Wyalusing State Park -Open waters of the
Mississippi and Wisconsin Rivers are teeming with waterfowl – ducks, geese,
swans, blue herons and gulls.
Columbia County – Tundra swans
La Crosse County - About 1,000 tundra swans
are using the open water area of the Mississippi River just south of Goose
Island in Vernon County.
Pepin County - Although county snowmobile
trails have closed there is still a lot of snow on the ground. The Chippewa
River is slowly losing its ice and migrating ducks, geese and swans are taking
advantage of the open water.
