DrFumblefinger ·
 I enjoy birds, though I don't consider myself an avid birder.  I think swans are elegant, graceful creatures but before this year I'd only rarely seen them in the wild.  During a recent trip to Vancouver Island, I visited this bird...

A visit to Abbotsbury's Swannery is like no other, because its hundreds of birds are the world's only managed flock. They've been there nearly 1000 years.

Thank you not only for massively multiplying my knowledge of these birds, but also for the beautiful pictures of masses of the birds in flight...the patterns they form are fantastic!

I know how much U love birds, birding and nature, Tom, and you've give all of us who are even vaguely interested a reason to head up to Saskatoon. Of the many great birds you document, the one that has fascinated me the most is the whooping crane. Standing almost as tall as a man, it was at one time even closer to extinction than the California Condor. I'm far more optimistic about the Whooping Crane's survival than the Condors, and I really would love to see one of these in the wild.

All of these birds pass through Saskatoon during October. The Whooping cranes fly from the Northwest Territories in two or three days flying time and then stop for a couple of weeks near Saskatoon before flying on to Texas. I have been to their breeding grounds in the north and their wintering grounds in Texas so I have seen about 30 or so of them. They don't migrate in large groups like geese. They travel in family groups so five or six of them will arrive at a time. Some will reach Texas...

Thank you for the nice pictures of swans, which are common throughout England on suitable rivers and canals. Back in 2010 we had a very cold winter and even a white Christmas. These swans were quite confused when the River Exe in Exeter froze over, but they are still looking for food.
