At dusk about 40 Tundra Swans were settled in for the night west of the 
lighthouse jetty at the south end of Cayuga.  Earlier a small family came to 
shore with the young one, feeding with Ring-necked Ducks and a small group of 
Redheads and Canvasbacks:

In groups the swans are vocal (I like their voices), but I don't hear them when 
there are just a few.  At dusk, not much light and far away, there are a few 
dark necks evident:

Lately the waterfowl rafts at the SW corner of the lake have been coming and 
going a lot, and are smaller (hundreds vs. thousands).  The ice has been coming 
and going too, and that has an effect.
