Mute Swan

I went out to Esquimalt Lagoon yesterday to see what kinds of birds are wintering there. It was really a wonderful assortment - Goldeneyes, Buffleheads, Scaup, Mallards, Pintails, American Wigeons, Common Mergansers, lots of Seagulls and a flock of pigeons - but my favorite photo of the day is of one of the Mute Swans that live in the lagoon year round. While not an indigenous bird they have naturalized themselves many generations ago and are a pleasure to see.

Nice close-up, they can get a bit angry sometimes if you get too close.
