Trumpeter swans migrate into western Wyoming
Jackson Hole, WY. – A record number of trumpeter swans have arrived at their winter home at the National Elk Refuge near Jackson this month, according to a Wyoming Game and Fish survey. 437 trumpeter swans have ended their migration route from their summer home in the Canadian taiga, and landed in Wyoming.
Somewhere in the range of one thousand swans typically spend their winters in western Wyoming and usually arrive in late October. The warmer weather has seemed to keep the swans from settling yet this season, placing them a bit behind schedule.
