Winter Beauty On Conesus Lake - Tundra Swans Featured on CBS
For most, seeing a Swan in its natural habitat is relatively rare. For year round residents of Conesus Lake, it's an annual early winter treat. Before the Lake begins to freeze, the lake is actually a hotbed for several species of birds. You'll find hundreds of ducks floating on the waters of Conesus Lake all year round, but they are especially active in November and December. Geese too are quite common on the lakes waters. However the anticipation of the arrivals of the swans is unique. This time of year, the usually quiet lake is buzzing with sounds of splashing water, wings flapping, quacking and honking noices (see video.)
This is just another special quality of Conesus Lake that is appreciated by those who call it home. The natural beauty of the Tundra Swans here on the Lake, has even garnered some national attention on CBS's Sunday Morning program. Here is a video of one their nature segments from Conesus Lake.
