Caught on Camera

By Tom Venesky - [email protected]

Peter Petokas was conducting a bird count in Bradford County last week and came upon this pair of tundra swans on the upper Susquehanna River.

The swans are migrating through the area on their way to the spend the winter on the Chesapeake Bay. While they are sizable birds with a wingspan that could reach more than five feet, tundra swans blend in well with the winter landscape, sporting a pure white plumage and a black bill.

Tundra swans are also called “whistling swans” because their wings whistle when they fly.

Capture anything interesting on your hand-held or trail camera? A nice buck, bear, coyote or any other wildlife? We’d love to see it. Each week, we’ll run photos from a reader’s trail camera on the Sunday Outdoors page. Email your photo, along with date and area it was taken (township is fine), and any other details to [email protected]
