The Trumpeter Swans have returned to Hudson, Wisconsin again this year. When we stopped there were over a hundred of them in a small area on the Saint Croix River. It was very cold out an many of them were huddled on the ice.
There appeared to be an argument going on. This happens every so often when a number of Swans head toward one another and a dust-up takes place.
While we were watching a small flight of Swans came in. This one almost landed on top of a couple of other Swans.
This young Swan seemed to be doing his mid-day stretching exercises.
This swan was eating along the edge of the ice just before climbing up onto the ice to rest.
