Thousands Of Tundra Swans Are Headed Straight For Utah This Fall

Every fall, thousands of tundra swans fly down from Alaska to Utah to spend the winter. They spend just a couple months at the Bear River Migratory Bird Refuge before heading to bask in the warmth of central California for the rest of the season. The swans will be arriving soon, so plan your visit!
