SEAFORTH – It’s spring, and while most of us are looking forward to warmer days, the majestic white tundra swans are making their way back from Chesapeake Bay, Maryland to the Arctic Circle for summer vacation.

Along their arduous route, they can be spotted at annual staging areas in farmers’ fields and open waters, which provide them with food and rest.

For a full description of their migration, visit The Friends of the Pinery Park’s website.
