SPEECHLESS SUNDAY - OOOOO AAAAAHHHHH

By
Real Estate Agent with Shahar Management

These beautiful creatures are in a pond next to a nearby restaurant.  Prior to seeing these I had never seen a black swan before.   It seems that this pond is their home for they are there everyday when you go by.  On this particular day we had a little photo shoot and they were very cooperative.  For those like me who have never seen one of these before I hope you enjoy the pictures.

Wonderful....I look best in black, so I can appreciate the swans going against the trend of white and doing something more trendy :)

I had a pair of white swans in the pond next to my home in another city. They are very teritorial and they mate for life. This is my first pair of black swans - glad you had cooperative subjects.

What a great idea for a group, Debra!!

I wish I'd had my camera earlier this week. A whole family (4) of Eastern bluebirds has come for the winter.  They nested in a little house we had for them on the fence last year.  We are hoping two of them make it their home again this year.

Sonja-I could watch birds all day-my mom-in-law has tons of bird feeders and she attracts all kinds of birds and I love to sit and watch them all.
