Tundra swans (Cygnus columbianus) pass through Minnesota in their spring migration from Chesapeake Bay to their breeding grounds in the Arctic. In flight, swans can average 40 to 50 miles an hour. In this diorama at the Bell Museum of Natural History, a group has stopped to rest and feed in the Minnesota River bottoms near Fort Snelling. In the background a group are feeding by "tipping up" and stretching their long necks to reach submerged plants.
