I went over and checked the pond on the Nelson Road to see if the Trumpeter Swans were setting up shop yet. And Yes! There is a pair there and one was sitting on a nest. It looks like the same spot where they built their nest last year. I wonder if they use the same nest? And I wonder if it’s the same pair of Swans that have nested here for the last two years. I think that it probably is.
I hope they have a successful nesting attempt this year. Last year something happened to the 3 cygnets that were seen. I suspect it was probably the neighborhood Eagle, but it could have been any number of predators.
