Today we took a road trip to Heber Springs, well technically 5 miles east to Magnus Lake. Apparently about 20 years ago 3 trumpeter swans on their way to their winter home in Montana got blown off course and wound up here. Since families travel together, and the young learn the migration routes from their parents, Magnus Lake has become the winter home of about 100 swans. This is the furthest south nesting lake for trumpeters.

They share their lake with some ducks.

The swans tend to stay on the far side of the lake.

The kids had fun.
