You guys! The weather may not be spring-like but there are signs that spring is here. The swans have returned! It’s kinda like the swallows returning to Capistrano…wherever that is.

Swans building their nest

I’m sure this is the same pair of swans we see every year. The mom says swans like to return to the same spot to build their nest. And that’s exactly what they’re doing…on the little island right across from our house.

Okay, I know these aren’t the best pictures, but you get the idea, right?

I hope this nest is in a good place and soon there will be baby swans to see!

  1. Can’t wait to see your baby swans! The only babies we ever see around here are baby Canadian geese.

  2. That swan pair made their choice of location, and you are the beneficiary of their proximity, Ernie!

  3. Can you see them from your window? That is very cool.

  4. It is nice to see the swans have returned. The small birds are working overtime feeding their young. They build their nests in our Leylandii hedge. There are so many in there that we call it their apartment block.

  5. I hope their babies do OK……it’s a scary world out there isn’t it Ernie!

    Hugs, Teddy
