What a fantastic series Gil! This is a great opportunity for a documentary series - I am very jealous!! There is an item in the last pic that I cannot place - looks like a metal strut with a plastic top.
A beautiful series Gil.

Alex - that is some kind of yard ornament. This is right up against someone's condo. The birds took anything they could find to construct the nest including flowers, rocks etc. I am hoping for a sort of documentary of their growth and success. Thanks again!

After a storm, the sun came out briefly but that was time for a few more shots. This time the 2 day old cygnets are out on the water.
