In Toronto, Grenadier Pond’s resident Mute Swan couple depart every November … as soon as the pond starts to freeze over they take their leave and head just a bit south; however, the same couple returns every year in March so, any day, they will be making their appearance!

Last November, I walked over to see them and I timed my visit with the golden light on the pond as the brilliant sun of that afternoon went down…As the male Swan turned to swim back to his mate, he put up his wings and looked back at me.. I think he was saying to me what I was saying to him…. … so long, be safe and see in you in March …
