Vicki the swan is back in the water. Swankeeper David Novak calls her improvement “dramatic.” Although she is better, Novack said it’s hard to say if she will breed next season.
In other swan news, Stan and Wendy’s cygnet is being “a wild child,” according to Novak. The cygnet is trying to hang out with the new pair of swans who want nothing to do with it. Novak managed to get the familial trio back together for a feeding. He says the young cygnet is not viable for another six to eight weeks.
