Swan Dance
Photo By Duke Coonrad

  • Title: Swan Dance
  • State/Province/Region: Washington
  • Country: United States
  • Nearest Area: Skagit Valley
  • Nearest Town: Mount Vernon
  • Brief Directions: Take College Exit off Interstate 5 north of downtown Mount Vernon exits. Proceed about 1 mile east to a lighted intersection with a MacDonalds. Turn north and travel approximately 5 miles which is Francis Road. The reserve is well marked...and approximately 1 mile prior to the intersection of Francis road and Hiway 9.
  • Best Season: Winter
  • Description: I took this image in Johnson DeBay Swan reserve which was established by the Wa. Fish and Wildlife for wintering swans. It is planted with corn each year...and then when the hunting season is over for snow and brant geese and ducks in late January...the corn is knocked down...and trumpeter swans and thousands of ducks converge on the reserve each morning to feed. The Skagit River runs adjacent to the reserve...which is the overnight roosting area for most of the swans.
  • Gear: Canon 10D and Canon 500 F4 lens
