Swans in New Orleans City Park

IF YOU CLICK ON THE SMALL PHOTO YOU WILL VIEW A FULL SCREEN PHOTO WITH NARRATIVE UNDERNEATH.
The bayou and lagoons in City Park are ideal for waterfowl. There are several pairs of white swans in the Park but this pair is the only one who has produced cygnets this spring. There were six babies when I first discovered them but something happened to one. I hope to follow their progress for a while. It is challenging to find them and I have gone in some snaky places to photograph them. The cob is tough and warns me when I get too close.
FEBRUARY 14, 2006--Following Hurricane Katrina the Papa Swan and two cygnets were never seen again. Mamma Swan and three cygnets were found in Audubon Park but as of this date they, too, have disappeared from Audubon Park. Only a three year old, also a daughter of Mamma and Papa, is living in City Park. Her sister was lost during Katrina.
