Mute Swans on the Tuolumne River: The Baby is Alright
The pair took the surviving baby onto the big river today, and I admit I was a little concerned. The river is flowing twenty times normal, at 6,000 cubic feet per second, and the current quickly swept them downstream and out of sight. I worried that the baby wouldn't be able to fight the current back to their home pond.
I'm happy to report that when I returned from my walk 90 minutes later that the swans were back in the pond and the baby was with them.
