Swans on Lake Mendota

Hundreds of tundra swans stop for a winter rest on an ice sheet that is beginning to freeze and cover Lake Mendota near the Memorial Union Terrace on Dec. 11, 2008. Hundreds of such migrating birds have also been recently spotted gathering on the western shoreline of campus near University Bay and Lot 60.
