The pond is right off Hwy. 64. Exit 548. If you’re heading east, it will be on your right. In late afternoon and evening, you can have the sun in your face.
Swans could be anywhere in the area, usually seen easily from 64.

Is this in or near Tyson?
I'm in Fuquay Varina from out of town and Tundra Swans would be Lifers for me.

It's a good day to be waterfowl in eastern NC, apparently. The ag fields near exit 548 are hosting lots of Tundra Swans and Canada Geese, and a couple of binocular scans produced 4 Greater White-fronted Geese. Hundreds of geese were streaming in as I pulled away, hopefully bringing more potential to the roadside flock. Not much on the pond, other than a flock of mostly Ring-billed Gulls, and about 2 dozen Ruddy Ducks. Mallards and Rock Pigeons mixed in with the field-side gulls, but not much else of note.
