Someone asked about wintering Trumpeter Swans in MO.:
Our TRUS are from the interior populations of western Dakotas
and Minnesota/Wisconsin.  Only about 10 % of them actually
migrate.  The majority winter up there except in extreme 
conditions.  We manage a few of those 10 %.  This according
to Cornell's BNA account.  

Good birding,  Larry Herbert,  Joplin, Jasper County, MO.
