Finally getting back to my idea of posting about area flora and fauna with this week’s contribution being the Trumpeter Swan. These past several trips to my farm – Tannachton Farm – has been highlighted by these graceful and seldom sighted birds.
Don’t miss this video from Missouri Department of Conservation:

Read up on Trumpeter Swans in this Field Guide published online by the Missouri Department of Conservation.
Trumpeter Swans are a protected species and are not to be hunted since efforts are still underway to established greater numbers of this beautiful bird.
