At least seven swans have been hanging out in the open water on Crystal Lake in front of the Park District’s Main Beach House.

On Friday, there were mainly coots with the swans.  Two geese flew in and I caught one of them landing.  Saturday and Sunday there were hundreds on geese enjoying the open water.

This is not the first time I have seen swans, but I have not seen them often.

Here are some swans that stopped over in Crystal Lake in 2007.

    They are the trash “mute” swans … not real Illinois Trumpters …
