MUTE swan swimming in the harbour at Newcastle, Ontario
Brrr. Forget how cold it is! Have water, will swim.

And it's even nicer if your mate is there too.
Mute swans remain in Ontario year-round. Not native to North America, these swans with orange black-knobbed bills are native to Eurasia. During the eighteenth century, mute swans were brought to this continent to beautify parks and large estates. OOPS! A few escaped! Now their numbers are increasing in the wild every year, so many that some people call the mute swan an invasive species.
