Pentu the Swan Arrives from Chicago

Buckhorn Inn Staff Member Paul Shippers Escorts Pentu to Buckhorn Inn Pond

Pentu just loves being back on the water. She said no more airplane trips for her. She found the airport search she had to go through altogether too familiar.

Teller comes over to see what's happening. Raised wings indicate fear and aggression.

After just a few minutes, both swans settle down, lowering their wings. Teller has kept Pentu company all day today. He's already accepting his role as her protector. If all continues well, we will release Pentu from her cage tomorrow.

Pentu Arrives Monday Afternoon

We are creating an enclosure in our pond today in anticipation of our new female swan Pentu’s arrival on Monday afternoon.  Look for her to be in the water on Tuesday.
