Two days this week (Saturday and today, Monday) I have driven from Janesville to Middleton, Wisconsin (about 45 miles each way) in search of a great grey owl that has been hanging out behind the Middleton Post Office for the past week. He was there on Friday and Sunday, but on neither day I was there. So, today after failing to find the owl, I decided to go to a spot between Milton and Whitewater on Wisconsin Route #59 that I spotted yesterday where water standing in a corn field was hosting a flock of tundra swans. I have never seen swans in a corn field before. I’m guessing these are on their way back to Canada and decided to take a break. Either that, or they took a wrong turn off the freeway. Three shots of the swans are below.
