Ramblings about my life, my love of primitive quilting, and my love of Montana and it's wildlife
Nancy,Thank you for sharing your beautiful pictures of all the wild animals and land around your house. It is truly beautiful!Michelle
Thank you for sharing your lovely photos. I had my own Trumpeter Swan miracle in your neck of the woods and it brought back wonderful memories... You can read about it here:http://www.windingvine.blogspot.com/2009/08/im-back.htmlI have always had a soft spot for Trumpeter Swans since reading "The Trumpet of the Swan" by E.B.White to my sons when they were little.Thanks again!Blessings, Patti
We don't have too many trumpeters now, the mute swans have come in and taking their territory. Love swans, they are so beautiful.Debbie
I always love your critter posts because you always have such wonderful pictures and lovely commentary! Thank you.
Beautiful, elegant bird. We have several swan families over here, all with little ones now, they are sooooo cute. The mums & dads are really protective though, don't come to close or you will find out how big such a bird really is! They will come after you!
An amazing bird and such a treat to see.I am fascinated by wildlife, lots of things I've never seen before.Thanks for sharing.Angela.x
Thanks for sharing. So enjoy your pictures.
Oh My Gosh!! What FANTASTIC pictures!! I didn't know a darn thing about Trumpeter Swans and I can't believe their wing span or how fast they fly or how long they live. They are sooo beautiful too! I think you are so very blessed to be able to see these wonderful birds in person - very, very cool!!! I hope you are able to see and get pictures of any babies they may have and share them with us. But if not, I THANK YOU for sharing these as well as telling a little about them - such exquisite, beautiful, beautiful birds!!!
Nancy, these birds are amazing.We have a wildlife sanctuary close to our home and each year we see severel "pairs" of Trumpeter Swans.I did not know they lived so long.Beautiful and elegant.Rose
I learned alot today about trumpeter swans-thank you. Gorgeous birds
I've never "met" a trumpeter swan in person so don't really know much about them. Your post was really informative with all the facts you included. Your photos are lovely but it's hard to tell their size so I was surprised to read how large they are. Eight feet is a HUGE wing span. It will be fun to see photos of their nest, eggs, hatchlings -- whatever photos you share of the wildlife in your area are always wonderful.
Thank you for reading my blog and taking the time to comment.
