Hi Joey,

A number of swans gathered on Beck Pond in Hamilton over the past week.  When I first saw them, there were ten and then over the next few days, there were thirteen – six adults and seven youngsters, it appeared.  On Tuesday morning, I noticed several of them getting out of the water and up onto the ice.  When I checked back a short while later, they were all gone.  A friend who is an avid birder, told me that over the week, they had been flocking together into a community that would then migrate together.  Had I continued to watch as they got up onto the ice, I would have seen them get into the classic “V” formation and then take off!  I missed that sight, but very much enjoyed the beauty and grace of the birds during the week.  I thought that I would share one of the photos that I took of them!
