Trumpeter Swans at Lake Magness

By

Arkansas is the natural state, but we have some unnatural visitors every year in late November. Every winter, Heber Springs is chosen to be a winter vacation home for trumpeter swans.

Trumpeter swans are massive, 30 lb birds with up to 8-foot wingspans. They are the largest waterfowl species native to North America. Normally, these guys like to hang out in Minnesota, Alaska, cooler places. This group comes to Arkansas.

This group flies farther south than any other trumpeter swans, making this small 30-acre lake special. Information about seeing them and their history
