A Mute Swan cygnet poked his head out just as I was passing this nest, and was soon followed by a sibling.
They didn’t go very far.
The adult, presumably mother, based on swan behavior, was alert to the squirming around but never shifted her position.
She seemed to be prompting the pair to settle down; I don’t know if there were more young underneath or not.
Excursion over, time to tuck back in.
A staff person told me he thought this pair was about two weeks old.

Thanks, Liz, it was pretty neat to see the little ones pop out for some fresh air.
