Swan Excursion plans

I have heard of the recent Tundra Swan sighting at the Fort Worth Nature Center for the last couple of days and I think I am going to try and go out there this weekend to see if I can't locate them. @lulubelle has been such a help to me in rare bird matters. She told me just a while ago on my Facebook that a Trumpeter Swan has now joined them. I really want to see them. I have never encountered a swan before in my life. I know from books and guides that they are mainly a northern species. I don't want to pass up on this chance to document them. I have always wanted to see swans since I became a birder. I don't always get rare birds on my iNaturalist account. I do have that Mandarin Duck that was spotted last year in Irving but that was an exotic but still a rare bird for this area (may had been someone's pet.) Anyway now is my chance to get a couple of new ones to my Life List. I have been itching for a good sighting since I am not finding many different things. I would like to just hike at the Fort Worth Nature Center as well. I will have to bring my family along for the ride on this one; I am sure they have never seen a swan either. Maybe at the Zoo but not in the wilderness of their natural habitat. I am really excited: I just asked my aunt if we had any plans and she said we are in the clear so this weekend we are going to the Nature Center to get some really cool birds and to spend time at the park to get other things too. I am hoping to get a few other birds too that are down here for the winter. I am so ready to see these birds. I will have to make a e-bird check tomorrow and then ask the front desk attendant where they are when we get there if they know. I hope they don't fly off before they get there. Keeping my fingers crossed on this one. I hope they stay grounded until this weekend. Anyway that is my plan and I am sticking to it. This is Zachary Chapman signing off.
