Aaron, I moved your post to the main forum, so more people can see it.

Are you reporting tagged swans?  I saw a tagged Trumpeter at Pringle Creek (#191 if memory serves me correctly).

 Yes, both tagged and untagged to above Wye Marsh link.  I also call Mr. Harry Lumsden to report tagged Trumpeter Swans and to find out their history.  Always an enjoyable, interesting and informative conversation with him!  :D

I totally agree - I have many a time reported tagged Trumpters and have been pleasantly surprised to receive a phone call from Mr. Lumsden requesting any more information you can offer.  He is a friendly man full of knowledge and insight.

KPaw ... cool!   8)

Many years ago, contacted TOC re: a tagged Trumpeter Swan.  They gave me Mr. Lumsden's phone #, I gave him a call and all these years later, still talking with him.  Have never met him in person but found this picture of him on Google Images.
