Passing this along.

 From Judy Richardson:
I was crossing the bridge over Hemlock Reservoir in Easton on Center Rd, when I saw a group of Mute Swans. Beside them, sleeping on one foot was a BLACK AUSTRALIAN SWAN! I assume it is an escapee from somewhere, but I have never seen it anywhere 
around here before, and it made my day.
It had a bright red bill, so I came home to look in my Australian guide (I lived there in the 70s) to find it.
Someone near Easton ought to get down to look at it!
