Swans were common companions of the large groups of ducks that rafted and fed together in the upper Chesapeake Bay region, so commercial market gunners often added a swan decoy or two to the large rigs they set out. This heavy solid-bodied swan carries a substantial metal weight on its underside to balance it out in the water.
