Introducing Nik and Bello


Introducing a swan to a new environment is a gradual process.  From a custom-built enclosure at Camelot Lakes, Eric Bors-Koefoed releases a juvenile from Stan and Wendy's 2013 brood.  While the swan was hyper-excited to flee, the enclosure contains a feeder and a comfortable "pad" with shade and protection from predators.  This juvenile and its sibling/mate may also use it for nesting 3 years from now.  Camelot Lakes is equipped for and committed to responsible breeding and care.
