    Default Trumpeter Swans at Long Point

    Hello Guys,

    I saw two (2) Trumpeter Swans at Long Point yesterday afternoon. I watched them for over a period of an hour while a Mute Swan cob (male) harassed one of them ... probably the Trumpeter Swan cob.

    Eventually the Mute Swan cob returned to another Mute Swan (probably the pen) in the distance and the two (2) Trumpeter Swans reunited with each other ... another reason to delist the Mute Swan from the "List of Protected Species".

    I saw two (2) Trumpeter Swans at Long Point a few years ago during the fall but have not seen any since that time.

    Big increase in the last ten years, of nesting pairs of Trumpeters here in the North West.
    So common now, that seeing them is no longer a special moment.
    Most I have ever seem at once is 17, early October on Rainy Lake, probably getting ready to migrate

    Mutes are just plain mean!
    I’ve heard of them chasing canoeists, nearly capsizing them. I also have heard they don’t stand up too well with a paddle !!

    Really? That would be kind of neat.
