Earlier in the week, I received a call about a downed swan over by the small lake. I left my office and rushed over to find it, only to learn that it was dead. Last night, I was told there was a swan on a resident’s property on Birchside that hadn’t moved for days. Immediately I called Kaylee, the rehabilitator, putting her on notice while thinking the worst. I rushed over there this morning at 7:30, crate in my car, blankets, towels…all ready for a rescue. What I found was…a handsome, plump, plastic swan! Oh well, better plastic than injured or ill! An interesting way to begin my day at Lake of the Woods!
Until next time…it’s another beautiful day at the lake!
