BAD-TEMPERED SWAN
This male swan was the father of the cygnet photographed on pages 88-91. Sadly the cygnet was killed by a mink before it was two weeks old. The male swan was very aggressive towards other birds while they were nesting, but seemed to mellow while they had the cygnet. Now he has returned to his old habit of chasing the geese and frightening them.
