Thank you for the notice. Last year the visiting Whooper Swan in Snohomish
appeared to develop a maternal bond with some of the juvenile Trumpeters
who took to following the Whooper around in the fields. On one of my last
visits, the Whooper Swan and the juveniles were together and definitely set
apart from the rest of the swans. So I would not be totally surprised to
see them return together.
