Sorry, but after reading @InnerBanks (Swanquarter, Hyde Co, etc) recent Twitter tweet, I couldn't resist...
At last! The oval lake of blue appeared within her sight. The snow swan then arched her wings and ended there her flight.
And there she rested for a month on Carolina shores.
According to Inner Bank's tweet, the swans are back around Swanquarter and Lake Mattamuskeet. We'll be heading east in the near future!
