Early Arrivals - Tundra Swans By Owen Gromme

By Owen Gromme

Early Arrivals - Tundra Swans by Owen Gromme

A flock of four Tundra Swans land on some choppy open water early in the winter. The rising sun is creating a warm glow to the painting and print. The Tundra Swans mate in the late spring, usually after they have returned to the nesting grounds; as usual for swans, they pair monogamously until one partner dies. Should one partner die long before the other, the surviving bird often will not mate again for some years, or even for its entire life. The nesting season starts at the end of May. The pair build the large mound-shaped nest from plant material at an elevated site near open water, and defend a large territory around it. The female lays and incubates a clutch of usually 35 eggs, watching for danger while sitting on the nest. The male keeps a steady lookout for potential predators heading towards his mate and offspring. When either of them spots a threat, they give a warning sound to let their partner know that danger is approaching. Sometimes the cob will use his wings to run faster and appear larger in order to scare away a predator.
