Subject: IBET Trumpeter Swans now on IL list as a countable species


> 29 July 2005

> Greetings fellow ibeters,
>
> As of 17 July 2005, after deliberations by IORC and input, 
> data/information from surrounding states in the Mid-west, Trumpeter Swan 
> is now countable in Illinois as a regular species.
>
> Please take caution and note that there are certain populations which are 
> not wild, the Botanic Garden swans in Glencoe, IL, (Cook Co.) come to mind 
> (these are clipped birds).  You may wish to source the origin of your swan 
> observations from collar and leg bands.
>
> This species has been established to the north of us for some time now (I 
> found a pair nesting in remote NW Wisconsin this summer on an isolated 
> lake in Douglas Co. near the MN border).  It won't be long before this 
> species tries to breed again in Illinois (if they haven't already).  IL 
> CBC data has revealed this species as a winter resident in some Illinois 
> locations (Mississippi R. and Illinois R valleys, mainly) for many years 
> now.
>
> Perhaps, Doug, you'd like to chime in with any additional information, 
> too.

> Good birding!
