Trumpeter Swans

Ann S. & I found two Trumpeter Swans on a pond along Telegraph Road  about 1/4 mile west of Winnebago Road at 4:00 P.M.  today. Seems quite early for Winnebago County. Not many shore birds to be found in the county today tho. Usual, Spotted, Solitary, Pectoral’s. No habit. Pec. Wetlands had nothing.
