On the other hand, the swans seem pretty pleased with life and are showing no signs of going anywhere else for the winter. Today there were also many bufflehehads, but I am still waiting for the oldsquaws to show up.
I am now consistently seeing five swans, so I am guessing that this group is the family that got raised in the bay down here; one day I saw nine, which I would guess was this family swimming about sociably with some other local swan family.
