Trumpeter Swans Teaching their Cygnets how to Preen.

62 views Port Skipper July 8, 2014 unknown Date shot: July 8, 2014

Just before coming ashore the parent at the waters edge had taken an elaborate bath in front of the cygnets. It then came ashore and proceeded to clean and arrange what seemed like every feather. The cygnets copied the behaviour as best they could. Another lesson in life. School is not out for these youngsters. They will be in class every day from now on. Flight lessons are not too far off. They will solo in September.
