MVFN Nature Notebook: Trumpeter Swans, Otters, Clayton Lake

Recent Sighting received March 31st, 2017 from Howard and Mary Robinson:

“We had more bird species around Clayton again on Thursday March 30th. There was a pair of Trumpeter Swans and several pairs of geese near the dam in Clayton. A pair of Otters fishing and eating on the ice with the birds being entertained. There is not much open water on the lake so this wildlife is visible near the dam.

A Red Shouldered hawk returned to the area and we saw our first Turkey Vulture of season in our the area flying at our property.”

The Robinson’s have sent in some very stunning photos! Thank you.
