Siberian Migrant ‘Whooper Swans’ Grace Lake Biwa

Shiga, Feb 12 (News On Japan) –
Lake Biwa, in Shiga Prefecture, has change into the majestic backdrop for the arrival of whooper swans, also known as “messengers of winter.” Since mid-January, whooper swans have been arriving within the rice fields of Takashima City, every about 140 cm in size. Occasionally, they unfold their pristine white wings, showcasing their grace to the admiration of onlookers.

Whooper swans, often known as the widespread swan, are migratory birds that journey about 4,000 kilometers from Siberia to Japan every year throughout this era. According to the Lake Biwa Wild Bird Center, about 670 whooper swans have been noticed at Lake Biwa this season.

These whooper swans are anticipated to return to Siberia by late February, marking the tip of their short-term keep within the serene waters and fields surrounding Japan’s largest freshwater lake.
