Beautiful Invaders

A  L  O  H  A !

‘You are never too old 
to set a new goal 
or dream a new dream.’
                       C.S. Lewis












"Lay a firm foundation 
with the bricks that 
others throw at you."
                   David Brinkley 













"I speak to everyone 
in the same way, 
whether he is 
the garbage man or the
president of the university."
                              Albert Einstein 

Linking to
Wild Bird Wednesday

This is a mute swan.
They are NOT native
to California.
Read about the swan
even bird watchers
want controlled
'before it's too late."

Hello, the swans is beautiful. It is just a shame they are not native birds. Happy Tuesday, enjoy your day!

Yes beautiful but I get it.

Sad, but mute swans do take over an area. In wildlife areas here, officials coat the eggs of swans and Canada geese with oil to keep some of the eggs from maturing and hatching. Even so there are tons of mute swans and Canada geese!

Yes, our own mishandling of nature is at root of the world's wild life and climate problems!


Thank for partying here, friends

Lovely pictures of a beautiful bird. I'm sorry that it is an interloper.

I've been having a tough time figuring out a goal! I think I am turning into a hermit! I'm happier in my forest, than in public. Thank goodness for my husband! He's been doing groceries and all!

What a pretty bird.

Su-sieee! Mac said...

Is it so bad for creatures to migrate and settle in other lands than their home ones?

Cloudia said...

I think they drive out the more fragile birds that are part of the local ecosystem. Thanks for visiting!

Better to control them before they become a real pest.
Merry Christmas.
