I briefly attended the 18th annual 2010 Ice Bowl Frisbee Golf Tournament. Tons of people showed up for the event, we helped out as spotters while I took a few snapshots of the action.
I took a brief stop at Swan Park in Monticello on our way to St. Cloud where a local resident feeds our local population of Swans from 1/4 to 1/2 ton of corn per day, an enormous expense which she pays for herself and relies on donations. I spent quite a bit of time speaking to many other friendly photographers where we exchanged some other tips and locations.
(for more detailed information see my March 15th, 2008 post)
The Swans were repopulated in the region after being run to extinction but, they lost their ability to migrate South so a number of feeding stations have been setup along the Mississippi in open water areas typically downstream from power plants. A number of attempts have been made to get them to migrate which included cutting off the feeding stations but, none have been successful as of yet.
