Tundra Swan Count for 2018

Each morning the volunteers of the Elgin County Stewardship feed and count the swans. Morning counts do not necessarily reflect all swans in the area, as many do not land until after the feeding.

20 Swans reported on Feb 28


Once again, unpredictable weather and a cold snowy/rainy spring has affected the migration of the swans. They came early just at the end of February, but never got to the high numbers that we have had in past year.


In all, 32,832 swans were counted and fed over 31 days. Normally the swans stay approximately 21 days, the longer time frame this year was due to the changing weather.
