2015 North America Trumpeter Swan Survey
Summer and winter ranges are expanding in many areas, especially the Midwest, as recovering populations increase. Breeding distribution in North America is surveyed in detail every five years. Many states survey their breeding Trumpeters each fall and some conduct winter distribution surveys, however few detailed range maps exist. Check out the 2015 North American Trumpeter Swan Survey for the current range maps and population counts in different Flyways.

Tundra Swans in North America are part of a larger species distribution. Check out the "Circumpolar Distribution" to learn more.
North America's Tundra Swans nest in the arctic, and migrate for the winter either east to the Atlantic Flyway to the Chesapeake area, or west to California. Their migrations can overlap areas where Trumpeter Swans have been nesting or winter (especially in the Pacific Northwest).
