There have been a couple of reports of Mute Swans at the Vermont National Country Club recently, so yesterday I decided to drop by the club to take a look. And, sure enough, there they were floating on the north side of the pond west of the clubhouse. Oddly immobile, though, and floating awkwardly. Decoys, I concluded, probably deployed by the club to discourage (live) Canada Geese from settling on the pond.
Fool me once.....
