“First swans this spring”


Description from Leena P: The spring is really late this year, and lakes are still mostly frozen. There is a small open water area under a brigde I cross every day. Yesterday the first swans of this spring had arrived, and they were resting near the brigde, beautiful, bold and white. Now I know that spring is really coming!

    This is beautiful Leena! I adore swans and the grace and beauty of them! We have swans here but usually they are wintered over in special houses or sent south for winter and brought back in spring. Sometimes they are used here for goose control because the swans are so territorial. Welcome to LB.

    What a lovely pick and a beautiful harbinger of spring! We don’t get swans at our lake, but I did see our “Mr. and Mrs.” duck the other day. In the summer, we get blue herons (usually only see them early in the morning, then they spend the rest of the day in a more secluded spot, probably somewhere in the local Audubon nature reserve).

    Thanks! We have swans all over the place in the summer, but they head south when the lakes freeze. But we don’t have any black swans, they would be wonderful to see :) .

    A beautiful pick Leena! Lucky you, you have swans!! On rare occasions we have them pass through but never on a regular basis. I must say I’m a bit jealous, they seem so magical!
