A swan last weekend at my work, his/her wings were all iced up. He wandered right up to use and sat on the ice next to the fire with us. We called a wildlife rescue center they have picked the swan up and taking care of it.

Here in Michigan we have had such a bad winter all the swans and other water fowl have been having a rough time. Their wings have been freezing over, starving, and having a hard time finding open water.

Thank you Chesh.
It has been rough on our wild life. It was just 50 yesterday and now we have a snow storm with about 8 inches on the ground and still more to come.

We just had a canvas duck the other day crash into my office. I brought him in and wrapped him in a blanket and called the wild life center again to come pick him up.

I found out that DNR with just "dispose" of the birds. Especially the swan since it is an invasive specie to Michigan. It is a Tundra swan, Michigan native species of swans have a black bill.

I usually love winter, but it is starting to get a bit of a pest lol.

My work is a pet friendly place. My boss is a big animal lover.
He hired a new lady to help me in the office and she is not an animal lover at all. I haven't brought my dog for a while now. I feel kinda bad.
