Monday, February 5, 2018:  Paula met with her friend Scuba Leslie at Monticello, Minnesota, for lunch.
They also stopped to see swans along the Mississippi River.
These are Trumpeter Swans.  The dark colored ones are the young.
A local group feeds the swans all winter.
The food is mostly corn.  The swans love it.
Yes, they thrive in the cold weather and water which is open because it is downstream from a nearby nuclear plant.
The water is entirely safe and a favorite place for birds year round.

Quote of the day:    Beautiful birds.   Mark    < Back to previous story Ahead to next story >
