Nature Notebook Sighting
The following sighting was received October 31, 2018. Sent in by Howard Robinson:
“This afternoon we heard the familiar old car horn calls from Clayton Lake . . . we had a good sighting of a Trumpeter Swan family with three cygnets. Looking further along the far shore we saw several groupings of Trumpeter Swans for a total of seventeen. Maybe they will stick around for a few days.”
Howard was able to snap these “long distance” photos of the swans.
