Some things are just amazing folks and this is one of them. The story of the Restoration & Recovery of Iowa's Trumpeter Swans.
I have seen some trundra's too, but I am almost positive that the Swans on brushy are trumpeters, through there vocalizations. They don't sound anything like the Tundras we shot in ND. They sound more like what Marge Simpson would sound like having sex. :lol:With Trumpeters back I have also seen an increase in Tundra swans migration through Iowa.
Yeah, they were trading back in forth from there all day long on Friday. I wondered wth they were doing going West when they were feeding to the North.Beemer's pond is just a few miles east of Brushy. The area usually winters alot of swans. I think the hole they were keeping open in Brushy pretty well froze last night. This morning around 9:00 there were only 4 swans on the lake. I would suspect many if the will make their way to the pond.
I've noticed they they rarely all feed in the same area. I did see a few hundred mallards working a cornfield last night right off hwy 169 just south of hwy 20. I would assume they came from Brushy but didn't notice any swans in the area. There are also some ponds north of Web. City the swans use.Yeah, they were trading back in forth from there all day long on Friday. I wondered wth they were doing going West when they were feeding to the North.
