Swan and Cygnet in Manlius

There is great excitement in Manlius today. Faye and Manny's second clutch of eggs is at the end of incubation.
Syracuse.com reports that there are four cygnets as of this afternoon. I think I only saw one, shown in all these snaps. Five have hatched. One did not survive. A sixth egg remains to hatch. Maybe by tomorrow they will all be brought out of the nest for their first swim.

  1. Thanks for these pictures. The cygnet is adorable, how could one be considered and ugly duckling?
