Report a Swan
Trumpeter Watch CITIZEN SCIENCE PROJECT
Be part of recording swan history as it happens! You can help us learn about new migration routes, rest stops, wintering areas and nesting grounds. We share new sightings with swan managers in each flyway. It is so exciting to learn about new areas where Trumpeter Swans are being seen.
Step 1: Share your sighting with the Bird Banding Lab. (Reporting a white GPS collar? Go right now to Step 2)
Please report any neck collared, wing-tagged, or leg banded Trumpeter Swans to the Bird Banding Lab. If you are reporting a white GPS collared swan, go to Step 2 immediately. (Your report will be shared directly with the researchers).
When you submit a report to the Bird Banding Lab, you will receive a response from them with information about the particular marked bird you saw, including the bander and any bird age or banding location information. The bander will also receive a report with your sighting. Thank you for reporting your sighting!
Step 2: Share your swan sighting with TTSS
Your online report (below) will be reviewed by The Trumpeter Swan Society and shared where needed most.
Your report provides essential information. Your report increases the long-term security of Trumpeter Swans as they pioneer new areas. You are part of a coordinated network of volunteer observersdocumentingt swan numbers, dates, locations and the key characteristics of the habitats they are using.
