All six cygnets are doing well.

  5. I was thinking the same thing as Theresa, as it could be that a fish hook is lodged in the adult's throat. Will be interested and hopeful to see that is is just something harmless.

    1. Thank you Phil! It was seaweed. They were eating it from both ends. It was fun to watch them.
