Tundra Swan range

The Tundra Swan was once called the Whistling Swan. This is the smallest member of the swan family seen in North America. It nests on the tundra in the summer months and spends its winter on the eastern and western coasts. Some will also be seen around the eastern Great Lakes in the winter too. This swan has been reported as a very rare visitor to Cuba.
