MK and I walked ’round the lakes on Friday and I thought you might like an update on the Lake Cherokee Mute Swan family. When I first posted about this year’s brood, the cygnets were young and very small.
Proud parent – from April 16, 2020
And here they are from last Friday:
Although three of the six were lost, these three look very healthy. They still have a lot of their gray baby color, but they’re as big as Mom. And MK reports they’ve fledged and she’s seen them flying around the lake.
Here are a few more photos from our walk:
Shoreline. Birds really seem to like this spot along Lake Davis.
Red-bellied Woodpecker and a grub(?)
These two lakes in downtown Orlando are a very nice place to walk. There’s a lot to see (and photograph) and you can get some steps too. Thanks MK for inviting me and thanks for helping me spot things! I think we were lucky to get our walk in on Friday. Looks like we’ve got a bunch of rain heading our way.

Thanks for stopping by and reading my blog. I hope all of you are staying safe – take care of yourselves, your friends, and your families. And if you can, make some photos!

Thank you for the update on the swans! I appreciate your great photography.
Your are very welcome, Dale
Very nice to see the surviving swans looking so healthy.
The lakes look like great places to wander around!
Looks like a couple of very wet days ahead. Hopefully, storms will pass without damage.
Have a great new week!
It is a nice place for a walk, Wally.
The forecast for the next few days looks like it’s starting to improve. Hope so!
You have a wonderful week too!
