News & Notes

UTAH: Utah Division of Wildlife Resources shares where to see migrating trumpeter and tundra swans migrating in Utah. "Both tundra swans and trumpeter swans stop in Utah's wetlands for some much-needed rest and refueling during their migration north in the spring. Trumpeter swans are significantly larger than tundra swans. Trumpeter swans do not have a yellow-colored area near their eyes, and they also make a distinctive trumpet-like sound, hence their name. The bird's spring migration takes the swans from wintering grounds in California to nesting sites in Canada and Alaska." There is swan viewing at the Salt Creek Waterfowl Management Area, Bear River Migratory Bird Refuge and DWR's Eccles Wildlife Education Center at Farmington Bay Wildlife Management Area.

"There is good reason why the magnificent birds are so fond of her — Bev has been visiting the park for more than 30 years as part of a provincewide restoration project that brought trumpeter swans back from the edge of extinction.

Today, thanks to her dedication and the efforts of many others, more than 2,500 trumpeter swans are alive in Ontario. And the ambitious tagging and banding of the birds has resulted in one of the largest catalogues of a single species anywhere in the world." Read more...
