Swans in Jamaica Pond

There are three swans at the pond these days - a couple and a third wheel. Yesterday afternoon, all converged on the small island at the northern end of the pond, but the couple was not in a sharing mood - one of them broke off and drove away the third swan, which decided the middle of the pond wasn't so bad after all.

Alderfish reports that Larry the Baker Street turkey, who has spent the past couple of months dodging cars on VFW Parkway at Baker Street, has turned angry and is now attacking cars, which is probably not good for his long-term health:

After becoming offended last night by a well meaning driver shooing him out of the way, Larry has decided to regain his dominance by fighting off advancing cars.
