I’m so happy this morning! I just drove by the Voyageur Statue Pond and there were 3 Swans a swimming. Upon closer inspection, they were 3 young adults – they’re heads are still gray indicating they are young birds – I’m hedging a bet that they were our 3 cygnets from last summer coming back to their old pond where they spent so much of their childhood last summer. The other pair of Swans (who are probably their parents) are on an adjacent pond and are raising a new family this year.
The Osprey has at least one chick in the nest AND there was a Great Blue Heron standing on one of the nests that I thought had been abandoned. Yippeee! My babies are doing well!
