Unusual Arrival


Phil Lanoue Photography

Earlier this week I was watching a group of white pelicans that were floating around and feeding in the marsh pond. Suddenly I saw a different large white bird come gliding into the scene… it turned out to be, of all things, a swan! At first I thought it might have been a tundra swan but no, this was in fact a juvenile mute swan who had not yet grown into it’s adult all white plumage.

It is odd to see a swan in the marsh but perhaps this youngster saw the white pelicans and thought they might be his parents. 🙂

Also note a great blue heron on the left, watching with interest as the scene unfolded.
