North Cascades Photography – Johnson/Debay Swan Reserve


North Cascades Photography – Johnson/Debay Swan Reserve

Skagit Valley is the winter home for Trumpeter and Tundra Swans.  The Johnson’/Debay Swan Reserve, located along Francis Road in Clearlake, is a wonderful place to visit them.

The Johnson/DeBay Swan Reserve (JDSR), near Mt. Vernon, Washington, is America’s only swan reserve. Owned by the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW), the Reserve was dedicated in 2001 for the public to view wintering Trumpeter and Tundra Swans.

There is a parking area and a bench. In the summer its quite green!

The winter months are not as colorful, but the migrating waterfowl bring the place alive!

Its a welcome and wonderful sight!

There are all sorts of birds there, you never know what you’ll see!

Next week in North Cascades Photography: The La Conner Daffodil Festival
