The Swans are anxious to get back up north, but they’re running into the ice and snow that just won’t go away up here.
They are finding what little open water there is to rest and feed. My neighbor Harvey sent me these photos, Thanks Harvey!
They look huge next to the Canadian Geese.
The other afternoon I was heading home from town, and as I was going by Myrtle Lake, I saw two humps of what looked like snow out on the ice covered lake. Then one of the humps raised its’ head and I realized it was two Swans! There was no open water in sight! There are always Swans on Myrtle Lake. I think they might nest in the marshes in the area close to that lake. It’s always such a beautiful sight. Swans are so elegant.
