Yearly Early April Birthday Gift

April is my birthday month.  I look forward to Mother Nature's gift to me in early April.  You will see me looking up into the drifting clouds to find my gift -- a white ghostly "V" of long-necked birds.  Often you hear their haunting voices before you see them.  I am referring to Tundra Swans.  They are a sure sign of spring. They follow the melting ice line as  they move north to the tundra where they nest.

I was fortunate to visit the arctic tundra one spring and photographed a pair and their nest, so now they even have more meaning to me.
