Swans ready for winter on Lake Hopatcong

Thursday, December 15, 2011    Last updated: Friday December 16, 2011, 1:30 AM

As the colder weather draws near, residents of Jefferson Township prepare for the coming winter. These swans are no different as they stake out a section of Lake Hopatcong they hope does not freeze so they can continue to eat, and raise their families. This pair floats among the swells of the lake looking for a snack. Mute Swans are monogamous and will return to a nest each year to raise a new brood.

The flotilla of Mute Swans near Brady Bridge is quite different than what is normal during the summer months when single pairs defend whole bodies of water as their own and drive off other swans. Mute Swans are not native to the United States and were imported some time ago as decoration for parks and small lakes. What we see today are the descendants of those that escaped their original showy jobs.
