Most every year the trumpeter swans stop at the farm and I get to spend a few days taking  pictures of them, but this year they have not yet arrived.  It is a little early and I just couldn’t wait to see them. So last weekend I took a little drive to Lake Magness right outside of Heber Springs Arkansas and see the Trumpeter Swans that come to lake every winter.  If you have never been to the lake to see these amazingly beautiful wild swans you must go. These birds are so beautiful and I am so glad I went.

There were also a few Bufflehead ducks on the lake.  These little ducks are small and very fast.

It was a very rainy day but it was well worth getting a little wet for.
