In a previous post, I wrote that a pair of mute swans at the Abbott Marshlands had a cygnet that I could not find. Today I found it.

The cygnet is as large as its parents, although its feathers are grayish and not yet white. Its bill is still pale, and it does not have a bill knob yet. However, it is just as graceful.
