Trumpeter sightings spell sweet swan success story
S'wanderful - that's my word for this week.
Not only is the column full of trumpeter swan news, but most of it is pretty wonderful news - especially when you consider that just 20 short years ago (and for most of the twentieth century), we had very few trumpeter swans in the entire state.
That's right: According to the timeline offered on the Minnesota DNR Web site, trumpeter swans had been "extirpated" from our state sometime in the late 1800s.
