Our Visit with the Trumpeter Swans

Last Saturday Andrew & I went to Magness Lake to see the Trumpeter Swans.  


Our small little town is their winter getaway spot.


It all started with 3 Trumpeter Swans back in 1991.


They are pretty big birds.  They are the largest waterfowl species native to North America.  



There around 150 swans on the lake, including some adorable babies which are apparently called cygnets.




They make a very interesting sound.  It's the reason they are called trumpeter swans.  It was too funny.  They are definitely some mouthy birds.





They are just one more awesome thing about our little town.

We will definitely be visiting them again.
