It has been there for many weeks. It can move between the main duck pond and another wet area to the south closer to the hillside. There were two for awhile but only the one since early or mid-April. Last year, a pair summered-over at Bob Heirman Preserve south of Snohomish.

> there is a Trumpeter Swan at the Fobes Road wetland area. The swan is unable to fly but can walk, swim and flap both wings (the right one is damaged). You can see it off Fobes Road going north. There is a brown house on the east side and it is the water area out in the marsh. You will need a spotting scope.

At this time the area is too difficult to attempt a capture as it is swampy mud, and the bird can still swim and escape into areas less safe than this one from predators.
