I think they’re starting to get used to me.

Every year, we have the same pair of swans that nest behind our house. Within the last few days they’ve been keeping other large waterfowl off of the pond, trumpeting and shaking out their wings when other Swan pairs fly over. When they start getting territorial like that, that usually means she’s getting ready to lay her eggs. They also aren’t as shy – I walked right up to them and they only looked at me curiously then went back to feeding. Here’s hoping they have a large brood this spring!
