Winter Pond Birds

I took an hour or so today to enjoy the finally crisp winter weather & walked around our town's pond, The Mill Pond. The winds had calmed this morning so the geese were on the creek & the ducks & 2 Mute Swans were on the pond. Of course on the pond Mallards were present but so were the usual winter visitors including 25 Hooded Mergansers & 8 (4 pairs) Ring-Necked Ducks. Unfortunately I did not have a camera lens that could capture the distant pond visitors. But here are a few shots of the swans.
