I was standing on Tupper Road at about 8:50 this morning with a couple of walking companions whom I’d just met. Visibility was reduced by the falling snow to just a few hundred yards. We heard but could not see a flock of Tundra Swans passing south along the Cayuga Inlet Valley to our east.

In yesterday's snowstorm I heard and then saw 18 Tundra Swans flying quite low, traveling northwest over Boiceville Rd in Brooktondale. It looked like they were seeking shelter in the storm and could possibly have ended up in southern Cayuga Lake. Eva -- Cayugabirds-L List Info:
