Clayton Lake Trumpeter Swans

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.
