A Tundra Swan, on Pocosin Lakes National Wildlife Refuge, rises out of the water catching the sunlight. A Tundra Swan's (Cygnus columbianus) diet consists mostly of a variety of plants, both in and out of water. They will also eat crabs, shrimp and mollusks.
Pocosin Lakes National Wildlife Refuge is one of nine national wildlife refuges in the Coastal North Carolina National Wildlife Refuges Complex. Pocosin Lakes Visitor Center, located in Columbia, NC, is open 9am to 4pm whenever volunteer staffing is available.
