Christmas waves a magic wand
Over the world, and behold,
Everything is softer
and more beautiful.

Trumpeter Swans near Glenville Pond

Five adults and five first-year young swans
These wonderful birds are all tagged and are part of a private breeding program close to Newmarket, but in King Township.   10 of the huge swans are the most I have ever seen at this location.   It is an inspiring sight.   Native to North America, Cygnus buccinator is the largest swan in the world with a wingspan that may exceed three metres (10 ft.).

Pine Farms Orchard ducks

 Photos by Barry Wallace
I do like buying my apples at Pine Farms Orchard  when few people are around and about, because that's often when the resident ducks are allowed out of their pen and are free to roam about.   A feeling of peace immediately comes over me when I walk among these stately ducks.  Today was lovely because the sun was shining and temperature was up to 13C before noon time.
