I have been meaning to share this wonderful picture with all of you. This Swan is nesting close to Hwy 71, just North of Park Rapids about 6 miles in a swamp....I think someone forgot to tell her that she is in the state of Minnesota, after all it is the land of 10,000 lakes. Nonetheless what a gorgeous bird. Since the taking of this picture, four to six cygnets' have arrived. How fortunate we are to live in this area to see such beauty. Not everyone can drive down the highway and see this kind of wildlife.
