Flocking Swans

At last count by Connecticut Environmental Protection there were approximately 1400 Mute Swans in Connecticut. By my count they were all in the Connecticut River, North Cove, today.

Swans don’t migrate which makes me wonder why there were so many together. It’s even more surprising since they have such a poor attitude.

At one point I heard what sounded like hammering, a construction site almost. No, just another disagreement out on the water.

With this many Swans in the cove I was surprised to see kayaks on the water. Swan attacks on kayaks are common. So, 2 kayaks and 1400 Swans (6 foot wing spans). Now that would be a photo opp!
