Yes swans are a special bird. They stay together for life. These are rescued babies :shock: Two came in last week that hand gunshot wounds to the eye. The mother died :cry:

Some more animals who live there.

The picture of the horse was taken about two miles away.

That's sad. Is the other one going to make it? I've never really had the pleasure of being around swans but geese are fun.

Thats a lot of dogs!! Were they rescues as well?

Nice horse picture. :) I want a camera like yours!

It's not always a pleasure to be around them. They can get pretty nasty, especially the mute swans like in the pictures. But they are indeed pretty animals. I think the mutes are probably the prettiest of the swans.

I'm used to nasty animals.. I doubt the swans beaks could hurt as bad as a pissed off macaw's beak. :D

No, I doubt that too, but it's not their beaks that are so bad. It's their wings. They can whack you in the shin like you wouldn't believe.

I got "wingie slapped" on the head by a cockatoo once.. wings hurt like a son of a gun.

Yeah, now imagine that with ten times the size and force behind it.

That'd make one heck of a weapon.. wings of a swan and beak of a macaw.

That's a bird to be reckoned with.
