WILD BIRD WEDNESDAY - Lake Near Helen's Tower (Part 1)

The week previously I took my bird class to Kiltonga and saw Swans that were trying to get their 6 cygnets to move to a new territory however last Monday I took them on a walk near Helen’s Tower where we saw 2 Adult Mute Swans with their 2 cygnets who appeared to be older than last week’s ones due to the amount of white on their plumage, however their parents were still very content to have them around.   Again this is part 1 of these posts and I will show you part 2 tomorrow. Enjoy. 










 I am linking with WILD BIRD WEDNESDAY.

  8. The patterns on the cygnets wings are so beautiful. I guess some parents tolerate their grown kids hanging around longer and others don't like it. Just like human parents!
