One and a half years ago through one summer, 2012, and part of the winter, I stopped and visited this swans mother almost everyday. She lived on the Boise River in Caldwell. I know she knew who I was. She would pose for me daily, and I got so much joy out of her. Later in the winter two teenage boys shot and killed her and a Great Grey Heron that used to hang out with her. I also took some photos of him, but she was my joy. Before winter I saw one little Cygnet with her…still had grey feather’s and all…..I truly believe that this swan is her baby, now a Juvenile Swan…I am really excited about this
And so goes the Circle of Life…Meet Swagger!
