We have a small lake in our backyard and I love how spring brings new ducks to visit. We always have a pair of mute swans that come each year and they usually have a batch of babies too. This year, we have the same pair of mute swans, but a rare trumpeter swan has decided he wants to live here too. He’s been here two weeks, all alone, but the mute swans keep chasing him!
In our area, the DNR is killing off the aggressive mute swans so that the native trumpeter species can thrive. It’s created quite a bit of controversy.
If only they could all get along!
