    Smile The baby swans have arrived!

    Here's the new family...7 babies in all. What a joy it is to watch them, mama in the reeds with the little ones munching away and papa just far enough away, keeping guard.

    How great to view such wonderful beauties of nature! The last time I saw swans with cygnets the parents ran at me.......I didn't think I was close, but I guessed wrong. That was over 10 years ago and I was happy they left me alone!

    That is very cool! I am planning on raising baby ducks next spring, but I need to get rid of the snapper turtle first.

    They are so precious! I see you're in MA also. Is this by chance Fresh Pond? I saw the swans there the other day but not the babies.

    Cute! So serene & beautiful scenery. I hope the babies all survive. Are there foxes in your area?

    Ahhh, this is BEAUTIFUL! I love the absolute beauty of nature. We don't have the opportunity to see this in the desert...have a couple of lovely local lakes, ducks, but don't have the beauty of the swans close by.

    kayj, I'm not sure where Fresh Pond is...this is a little pond in Attleboro. This is a new "couple", this is their second year at the pond. Last year they had 3 cygnets but none survived. I'm holding my breath this year and visit them almost every day...I approach very carefully and quietly. Papa will swim right over if he feels threatened at all and the wings start to come up.
    Joy, folks have seen foxes on the other side of town but none here that I've heard of. I suspect it's snapping turtles that are the problem.
    Sometimes it's the simple things in life, right? Sunshine, flowers, swans...to make you happy to be alive.

    Ah, you're south of me. Fresh Pond is in Cambridge. I'll be rooting for your sweet cygnets.
