Margaret Bream of the Toronto Star writes:
“Tycho and Penny were the names I gave “my” two mute swans at Ashbridge’s Bay.
For nearly a decade I watched them together as they built nests and raised many offspring.
The great birds were inseparable. Now it’s been 14 months since Penny disappeared from Ashbridge’s Bay. One day she was sailing through the icy winter waters with the resplendent Tycho. The next day, Tycho was cruising the bay alone.”
