    I can't imagine dealing with a recalcitrant bird of that size! I think my broody hens are pretty formidable! Lol.
    But they ARE so beautiful! Worth the exercise in nesting season.

    Swans are not particularly friendly, but mostly they get out of my way except for our Sidney Swan during nesting season. Fortunately swans are not very fast on land. But we do need to contend with Sidney when it is time to pinion the cygnets.

    Wonderful photos! You are surrounded by lovely birds, domestic and wild!
    Do you find the swans mean? I've always heard they are, but they are SOOO beautiful! Do your exercise you (running from them)?

    Thank you, we got the feeder at a pet supply place on line (I will have to double check which one.) We had a plastic one before from Tractor Supply, but the squirrels chewed through it. Every now and then a squirrel gets trapped in the metal one.
