TODAY'S VISITOR WAS THE MUTE SWAN~~ ENJOY!
The beautiful Mute Swan is more graceful than the Whistling Swan, swimming with an S curve in the neck, wings arched. The knobbed orange Bill pointing downward. Their wingbeats make a singing sound and they do talk making gutteral sounds in their throat and when aggressive they hiss like a cat! This one was very friendly and not menacing at all, perhaps because he was not with a mate. He ate right out of my daughter's hand.
