We have baby cygnets … ;-)

Looks like my hunch was right. The swans at Oakland Lake lost 9 eggs that I spotted a while back. A few days later, I had seen the swan back on the nest. She’s been there ever since. I stopped by yesterday to check, and the nest is empty, then all of a sudden I saw her come out from the reeds with 2 baby cygnets tagging along. Then poppa came back, and they all went out for a water ride to feed. I doubt she had a second clutch, these may have been part of the original clutch of 9, but she wasn’t finished laying all the eggs. So happy to see that she has a least 2 babies to nurture, and for us to enjoy … ๐Ÿ˜‰
