Swans in Arkansas!

"Just had to repost this for everyone to see. It's such an event!  And wanted to include mention of a great book on the same subject. E.B. White's "The Trumpet of the Swan" 1970. The children and I have read this many times over the years. And then just imagine to have them come to Arkansas!" Try to go see them.

This beautiful full moon reminded me of something I want to tell you all. Every year in November, on the full moon, the Trumpeter Swans come to Magness Lake, near Heber Springs, Arkansas. (I suggest calling the chamber for directions, it is out of the way!!! 1-501-362-2444) If you live in the hills, the old saying "you can't get there from here" certainly applies, but for all who make the effort you will be rewarded. Here is a picture we took 2 years ago. So fellow Arkansans, or those who may be visiting, here's something natural to do in the Natural State. By the way the Swans leave the same way they come, right on schedule with the full moon in February.
