Wildlife Watch Helps Two Lonely Swans Unite

Full story: http://www.recordonline.com/archive/2004/09/15/wanmate1.htm  

Someone named Carmen really made this happen. She watched the happy pair for years and even contributed an aerator to the Town for the pond. One day someone broke the male swan’s neck! For over a year, the female, Missy, pined away. We were happy to do our part to transport Meni to Missy. If you have never seen two swans in love, please enjoy the photos!

The Town Supervisor, reporters and many of us were on the shore waiting with bated breath to see how the swans would take to each other. Then Missy began to move closer to Meni, and closer still.

They greeted each other by thrusting their graceful necks out and crossing from side to side several times as two people do when they haven’t seen each other for a long time; kissing first on one cheek and then the other.

They concluded this amazing display by bowing to each other to form a heart. Color photo online at www.wildwatch.org
