Jan 17, 2018: Tracking Swans

A total of 31 Trumpeter Swans were present this morning, including immature #1706 (see the posting from 26 Dec 2017).  Note the GPS tracking collar on its neck.
On a sadder note, the swan pictured on the 2 January posting perished overnight of the 5th-6th.  I believe that this one was the mate of the one that was found dead on 31 December 2017.  The swan had remained near the body for several days before moving closer to the open water.
