Trumpeter Swans beautiful videos.

The Great Trumpeter Swan is making a comeback in Iowa thanks to the hard work of many individuals donating money, the Iowa Department of Natural Resources and many County Conservation Boards.
Thank You All,
WillCFish

Hi, WillCFish, and another welcome to the BirdForum. We are glad to have you aboard!

I went up to Squaw Creek NWR, Mound City, MO, this morning and found 92 Trumpeter Swans on the refuge (and over one milliion Snow Geese). It was a great morning's birding. I observed 23 species of geese and ducks while there.

Good Birding!

Hi Larry,
I took the video in North Central Iowa, West of Webster City where there is a wintering flock of Trumpeter Swans. They started with a pair right in this area and it has expanded to many more around the state. We are so glad to have them here and what a magnificent bird in flight.
I am presently working on a huge wildlife/recreation area that is now gypsum quarries in our area. I will not live to see it done but am encouraging City, County and State officials to work together to make it a reality.
Thank You for all the warm welcomes.
Clayton
