Usually I am left to fend for myself on the May long weekend as the final push is on to get the last fields planted. Due to a strange combination of running out of seed potatoes and yet more rain, this long weekend was not as hectic as it usually is. I had a bit of free time to study the swans in our irrigation pond a little more closely. When I arrived at the pond, they swam over to greet me. They either have no fear of humans, or they are very curious birds. It turns out swans stick close together, and they seem to be synchronized in their actions. Now to keep my eyes peeled for babies! You can view a video of the swans at “Tater Tales May 5th: The Conversation. “
