As many of you are aware there are currently 14 Trumpeter Swans using
the north side of Union Bay around the UW rowing/and other docks all the
way east to Yesler Slough by Laurelhurt.
One of the swans is ill. Today, a rescue capture was attempted. Thank you
to those on shore helping spot the swan and Larry in the kayak who helped
us maneuver to determine if a capture was possible.
That said, the swan is ill but still able to fly well enough (joined
the main flock) to evade our capture efforts. For those of you who bird in
this area this week, please keep an eye out for the sick swan. If you see
it up on shore, please note where. We would like to try again in a few
days. If you find it deceased then we do want to come out and retrieve that
Please call me directly as I can respond faster than going through the
WDFW Swan Hotline. If you see swans elsewhere that are in trouble, please
use the hotline: 360-466-4345 x266
Direct line for me: 206-713-3684
