Messengers of Spring, Whooper Swans.

A whooper swan is our national bird, and also the first signs of spring. A whooper swan is in finnish laulujoutsen. Laulu is a song and joutsen is a swan.

  2. Your laulujoutsen is beautiful. The feathers look like tulle material in a ladies dress. So that is where the title, “Swan Song” came from!
