This spring and summer I had the opportunity to learn more about migrating
trumpeter swans and a few tundra swans in the Okanogan and Methow valley
areas. Here is the latest and exciting report from Victor Glick that was
passed on to me--- this is a substantial number of trumpeters if they are
indeed all trumpeters. They will be moving south so keep an eye out for
them along that same path to the south.

Keep an eye out for collars as well.

This morning we found a gorgeous flock of 35 swans on Twin Lakes, in
Winthrop. The ones close enough to id were Trumpeters. We had seen 18 swans
there Friday. There was also a late Yellow-rumped Warbler hawking insects
nearby.

Another late migrant, a Greater Yellowlegs, was at the small pond about a
mile south of Twisp on the west side of the Twisp-Carlton Rd.
