This was a rare sight for Alma ... we enjoy a robust Bald Eagle population and Tundra Swans are a fixture in the fall but no one remembered Trumpeter Swans.
1-15-2010, 3 Trumpeter Swans
Wednesday brought a return of Trumpeter Swans to Alma,
2 adults and 2 cygnets. This year they are a little south of the Lock & Dam
feeding in the open waters of the Mississippi River.
One adult and one cygnet are banded.
Today there was a Bald Eagle intently watching the group
float by on the Mississippi River
as they were feeding ... but no interaction.
Check with the staff at Wings Over Alma
if you come to town and want to view the Trumpeter Swans.
