Hi all, There might be a sw@n in the Panola area (S. DeKalb, Rockdale, Henry). I was at Vaughter's Farm (DeKalb) this morning and I saw a lone bird flying straight from east to west along the tops of the trees to my south. It was quite some distance away, and though the light was good its markings were indistinct and on the darkish side - it was silhouetted against the blue sky.
It seemed to have the proportions of a sw@n as opposed to a goose, with a longer neck and larger wings.
It was heading in the direction of Alexnaders Lake, so I checked there. But unfortunately the lake area is closed and almost drained. There were four Canada Geese in the little pond that is left.
I know this is a bit vague, but I thought it sufficiently interesting to alert people in that area.
