I've always said that swan care comes with surprises, but it's all teachable moments. With the people of Sunnyside Lakes so motivated, euphoria fogged over my common sense. The swans will escape the environs regardless of the plusses humans perceive if even one potentially fatal factor is present. While this failed placement was sufficient disappointment, it was difficult to accept that the community did not want to move forward with adjustments to the habitat that would have allowed the swans to remain there. Score one for the common sense of swans, score zero for me for not covering all the elements of a successful placement.
