This is a male mute swan that lives on a local lake near me in Rockaway, NJ. He likes to show his wings to me and act like a tough guy, but I think he appreciates the bread I bring him and his mate every so often. He’s more territorial when it comes to the geese that inhabit the lake. He gives them all sorts of grief. When he isn’t gobbling up bread, he dunks his head and eats the underwater vegetation in the lake. That makes up most of his diet.
