The Swans are gathering together before heading south.
We headed out last Sunday afternoon to get some supplies for the “Train project” ..Far Guy pulled over at the public access at Sivertson Lake so I could take some photos.
There were many pairs on the lake. They stay near each other.
They must draw comfort and support from their mates. These two have it covered..between the two of them they can see all around. They “have each others backs.”
The Swans were silent until we let Chance out for a walk. The warning calls went on down the lake..from one pair to another..until they were all alert and watching. Of course Chance is not a threat..but the Swans don’t know that.
Soon the lakes will be frozen..and the Swans will have gone south. They will return in the Spring..in groups and then one day they will break off from the group to find their own private lake to raise their young. So the circle continues..the gatherings in the Spring and the Fall must be like a family reunion:)
