Tundra Swans mark the arrival of winter on the Niagara River. These birds can often be observed in the Niagara River just offshore of Beaver Island Park. It is one of the smallest of the swans in North America. Identifying this species of swan is quite easy. Just look for the yellow patch at the base of the bill below the eye. This photo was taken at the end of December 2015.

Shannon Zaccaria wrote: " I was driving down the East River just past Byblos around 5:10 p.m. on Tuesday and noticed hundreds maybe thousands of ducks all along the shallows, gathered together swimming and fishing, when I came upon this beautiful sight of swans. I had never seen this before in the river and thought it was a wonderful sight."
