NEW HAMPSHIRE: "It has been more than 200 years since a Trumpeter Swan has been seen here in the Granite State, until this spring, when the excitement at the Audubon headquarters was palpable. The buzz around the office was that there was a Trumpeter Swan being seen at the Abe Emerson Marsh in Candia." Read more...
MINNESOTA: "This morning their musical honking calls draw me to the shore of the small natural environmental lake bordering our farm. Yes, there they are, sounding like a symphony in brass—our pair of trumpeter swans in gleaming white plumage with two dusky gray cygnets by their side. Soon they, too, will be migrating."

MINNESOTA: "Waabiziiwag giiwewag, "the swans return home." This work to restore some of the original dignity of this land and waters is the work of a lot of people and agencies who are often not acknowledged. These birds were returned from the brink of extinction because they were classified as a non-game species. They were restored because people worked together, and the swans wanted to come home. They are some pretty noble creatures.
As I pass the shores of Shell Lake, I often stop to put my tobacco out in prayer for the wonders of the north country, and the headwaters of the Mississippi, home of the Waabiziiwag. Their homecoming has been long awaited. " Read more...
ALBERTA: "A trio of swans was flying directly overhead. They’d just lifted off from a group of maybe 50 or so of their siblings and cousins, running across the water and flapping their huge wings to get airborne. Rising into the air, they banked and headed off southwest, bleating out farewells to the birds they’d left behind — or maybe just telling each other to watch how they were flying — and heading toward the truck."

MONTANA: "The Bitterroot Valley’s first trumpeter swan cygnets born in the wild are now large enough to fly...The cygnets are the first documented wild trumpeter swans hatched in the Bitterroot Valley since restoration efforts started decades ago to bring the birds back from the brink of extinction in the lower 48 states."
