Feb 11, 2020: A Walk with the Family

A family unit (2 adults + 4 immatures) just before they took flight from the south lake ice.  They were part of a total of 103 swans this morning.
Update on the dead Trumpeter Swan: Although the swan was injured on one side of its body and was predated upon, the reason for its weakened condition was due to lead poisoning. (Wolf. Oesterreich, 2/11/20)
