Although there are a number of places in the US and Canada where Tundra Swans spend the winter, most of them are home to, at most, a few hundred birds. The Pocosin National Wildlife Refuge, and nearby Lake Mattamuskeet, in North Carolina had well over 25,000 birds this winter. We were fortunate enough to see almost all of them come in to roost for the night over about a 2 hour period. The sight and sound were truly spectacular. This trip showed that the little Panasonic VX870 camcorder is good enough for wildlife shooting.
