We have eight swans all together, which includes two breeding pairs and a male who has decided he is ready to romance a potential mate. Up here in Michigan there is only so much water we can keep from freezing over so the swans don't spread out much this time of year. This means there are a lot of swan chases. The oldest male (Sid) chases the other mated male (Swagger) and he manages to get over the fence. He doesn't go far, because his mate is still in the fenced pond area. In the mean time the two and a half year old male (Mr. Hiss) tries to romance his mate. The first thing Swagger does once I get him back to the pond area is chase the young upstart for flirting with his mate!
