L58 #2

Trumpeter Swans, the largest waterfowl in North America, were extirpated from eastern Canada over 200 years ago. The reintroduction program that began in the 1980's has been a resounding success! The trumpeter swan population is now in in excess of 900.
Meet L58, a female cygnet, hatched in 2012 near Port Severn. I spotted her and her mate in one of Collingwood's Storm Water Management Ponds. She's about the right age to mate and nest now, but I saw no indication she was doing so.
