    Yesterday afternoon I was greeted by the swans at feeding time. These birds are getting really tame [​IMG]
    They were getting so close, so I decided to squat down( I had to prop myself on the bucket) and see if they would come and eat from the bucket
    while I was holding on to it. Sure enough they did and then they had to check me out. They were nibbling all over me...LOL One of the girls was pulling on my sweat shirt on my side...she was tickling the crap out of me, while another one was nibbling at my shoes. I loved every minute of it. They all surrounded me with their heads bobbing up and down and making those whistling sounds they make. A couple of times while I was talking to them they were trying to make the trumpet sound. So yesterday I was "Officially Initiated" into the swan club [​IMG] I wish I had gotten swans years ago.
