The local swans are off and flying south. They are always some of the earliest migratory birds to arrive in our area and the last to leave. This year’s babies were born in July, seem to have learned to fly now. They have been practicing for weeks. Their calls are beautiful and echo the melancholy sound of late Autumn in the Palmer Alaska Area. We will keep the faith that the swans will return to Alaska in April.
