Swan Pond Swan

Here's a photo of a swan sitting on the ice on Swan Pond across the street from where I live. This swan was sitting at this spot for quite a long time and I hope the the swan's feet weren't frozen into the ice.

I remember my brother Scott told me a story one time about when he lived near Fairfield, Connecticut and one time during the winter a group of ducks were standing on the ice over night. Apparently, during this winter night the ice thawed a bit and then re-froze. The next morning these ducks were walking around as if on stilts as their feet froze in the ice and they couldn't easily get them out of the ice so the poor ducks yanked their feet right off. Yikes!!
