Trumpeter Swans at Bluffers Park

This family of Trumpeter Swans (right), two adults and six cygnets, drove off two other Trumpeter Swans (left) that were attempting to come on shore at Bluffers Park in Toronto. 26 December 2013.


The cygnets imitated the adults' aggressive stance as they bunched up and advanced in unison on the two other swans, forcing them off shore back onto the ice of the bay.

They strutted about in exquisite postures


Stretching their necks, they bobbed their heads up and down.
