|A beautiful day for a walk in the park.|
Friday April 11, 2014. Swan Lake Village area,
|On the day before our mute swans, Romeo and Juliet returned to the lake, another pair of Swans were checking out our lake as a possible nesting site. Now that we have warmer weather and the ice is gone I thought I might send out a few of the pictures of these two romantic Trumpeter Swans.|
|Swan Lake Park - April 11, 2014|
|I took this picture from the pier and the two Trumpeter Swans were swimming along between the pier island and the landing area.|
During their visit to the lake they kept starting the courting dance but I think the lack of open water discouraged them as they flew off.
The lake at the time was 90% covered with a mixture of ice and slush.
|The geese on the lake were upset to see the swans.|
|Finally they flew off to the west.|
