Around Thanksgiving we give thanks for another kind of bird, the tundra swans. Tundra swans visit the refuge starting in late November before migrating about 4,000 miles in March! They can fly up to 50 miles per hour, weigh 10 to 22 pounds, and have a wing span of 72-88 inches. Although they are all around the island, the Tundra Swan Boardwalk is the best viewing place to see the swans.
