BOSTON (WHDH) - Cygnet eggs have started to hatch at the swan’s nest on the Esplanade in Boston, officials announced Monday.

“Make way for cygnets!” the Charles River Esplanade said in a tweet. “We encourage you to visit the swan’s nest to experience cygnets hatching from their shells today!”

While the Charles River Esplanade is encouraging the public to visit the nest to view the spectacle, the public is urged to be mindful of the barricade that has been put in place around the nesting area.

Swan Boats returned to the Boston Public Garden earlier this month after spending last year in storage due to the pandemic.
