Yesterday five swans were released at Lake Sixteen in Skagit County. 4
Trumpeters and 1 Tundra. Each of them were fitted with a metal band on the
leg and a plastic collar on the neck. While they recover their flight
stamina at the lake, some may be making their debut to the wild in the next
day or week.
Please keep a lookout for swans wearing neck bands: Trumpeters: Yellow
with black letter and number. K44, K45, K46, and K47. The Tundra collar
is black with white letters: YJ1 This is a juvenile tundra.
If any one sees them outside of Lake Sixteen please email me
immediately and I will get the info to the appropriate place within WDFW.
The records will not be in the Bird Banding Lab for awhile since this just
happened yesterday.
Enjoy the last of the swan season. And for those in the
Monroe/Crescent Lake area--get out there and watch the swans leave the
night roost early in the morning. Time: 7:30-8:30 this week and next week
it will be an hour earlier due to daylight savings time.
