Same Sex Swans Spoon, Swoon

According to a story in today's Boston Globe, the cute swan couple in Boston's Public Garden, known affectionately to tourists as "Romeo and Juliet", actually consists of two females.

Some observers have expressed shock and alarm, but more sanguine types calmly shrug and note the proximity of the Arlington Street Church.

I suppose I'm in the not-so-surprised camp. After all, if you were "Romeo and Juliet", wouldn't you feel right at home in the neighborhood too?

We had a similar incident at Colgate University when I was an undergrad. We had a pair of swans in our campus lake, named Adam and Eve. One year they made a nest and laid some eggs, but the eggs never hatched. One biology professor did some investigation and discovered that the eggs hadn't been fertilized, because our swans were actually Eve and Eve.
