Having seen Rob's photo, I stand corrected.  Guess I was too focused on the cranes.  Those two swans in the farmyard are indeed trumpeters.

I saw two Mute Swans, apparently domesticated, in a farmyard there.  Were there trumpeters as well?

Mike Doyen and I drove to Kaskaskia Island today to see the whooping cranes and were able to locate them in the same location on Bond Road as previously reported. We saw them at 1:30 and at 3:20 pm. Mallards and pintails were present in large numbers. Gadwall, American wigeons, great blue herons, bald eagles and ring-billed gulls were plentiful. Two trumpeter swans and about a dozen killdeer were also present. On the way home, we stopped in St. Genevieve and stopped at Audubon's Restaurant for dinner. The walls were decorated with Audubon bird prints an Ivory Bill IPA, Quail Ale and Warbler Wheat is on tap. What more could a birder want?
