Description

This is a swan, that we saw while taking a walk around the pond at Tipton Trails. The swan didn’t do a lot besides sit there, and for that I am glad; I do not like birds, although it was very elegant looking. The surrounding area I thought was unusual for a bird of this kind, are limited meadow areas nearby but I wouldn’t think enough for it to have a sustainable life in that park. In my research, I learned that swans are native to Australia and when they mate, it is for life. This type of swan is called a Mute Swan.

The small ducks are Green-winged Teal. The larger ducks might be Northern Pintail, but I'm not confident in that ID.
