Wow ... every time I see one of these .... I am thankful that God made them. No other bird that I know of ... has this beauty and grace.

Thanks for putting it up ... great pic.

It has a reputation in the UK of being able to break bones. The victims are probably people who have got too close and got their arm hit by a wing. I can't believe they would peck a person to death. "Killer swan strikes again!" Would make a great headline in a newspaper.
