Homemaker - Swan on its Nest
This mute swan spent time on home improvement while I watched it. This consisted of reaching out with its elongated neck, picking up pieces of reeds and other muck at the base of the nest, and depositing them at the top. Look closely and you'll see swan's down, which I assume the swans pluck from their own feathers and use to line their nests. I don't believe the eggs are due to hatch for several weeks yet.
