Trumpeter Swan Facts

  1. Don't think I'm interested in swans. Mom is making me do an entry on an article I read.

  2. There are three different species of swans in North America.

  3. Most trumpeter swans weigh between 21 to 30 pounds.

  4. They have a wing span of 6 to 7 feet.

These facts are from Trumpeter Swans by Rachel Dickinson in Dolphin Log 7/8 2003.

Listen to the call of the trumpet swan on this Trumpeter Swan Society link.
