Great to hear of the Trumpeter Swan sightings and really exciting to hear that they are NOT tagged birds.It was Feb. and March of 2007 that the 7 tagged Ontario born Trumpeters were in the CT River and surrounding ponds of Chester and Deep River.I'm curious if anyone recalls any reports of Trumpeters from 2008 or 2009?
Thanks,Bill YuleLyme, CT.

3/29 - Stratford - Cranberry Bog Pond (with Randy Domina & Greg Hanisek)- TRUMPETER SWANS continue as of 8:03AM.We had great views of these birds displaying,chasing a Canada Goose away,and were also able to hear them.They actually swam toward where we were standing and did not seem wary of us.For those who have never been to this location,you'll know you're in the right place when you see the huge painted yellow "duckie" sitting out in the pond.
