Mute Swan with four cygnets

The Mute Swan is apparently an introduced species from Europe to North America. They are one of the heaviest flying birds and can weigh 30-32 pounds! I found this adult with four cygnets swimming behind him or her at Bombay Hook Wildlife Refuge.  These babies can't fly for five months so the adults better plan ahead so the family can get out before the water freezes!
