Mute Swans

The town's two swans have a pen at the west end of Kinpark. Federal regulations require that they have the feathers on one wing clipped so they cannot fly. They are taken from the river for the winter and kept at a farm in New Hamburg.

UPDATE: November 4 swankeeper Ron Hunter rounded the swans, Cindy and Samantha, to spend this winter in Stratford.
