URL for the 2010 NA Trumpeter Swan Survey report below. attached at end of this email. 

This below is an excerpt from the Annual Narrative Report 1986 for Mingo NWR

The swan restoration program continued in 1985, results once again were mixed. A visitor reported seeing two cygnets with the adult trumpeter swans along the south end of Ditch 4 on June 29. The cygnets disappeared within a few weeks, apparently the victims of a predator. This was the first known successful hatch of trumpeter swans in the state of Missouri. Seven trumpeter swans were obtained from LaCreek National Wildlife Refuge and released on July 15. On July 25, a fisherman reported seeing three dead swans on Ditch 11. We recovered two of the three, cause of death is unknown. A fourth trumpeter was later found in a weak condition in a pasture unit on the refuge. The bird was captured and taken.to a local vet where it died. At year's end there are five trumpeters on the refuge, two adults from the 1982 release and three from the 1986 release. 28 A lucky photographer was one of the few to catch a glimpse of the parents and cygnets together. 5/86 Rod Bowling A male trumpeter release in 1985 and presumed dead was discovered alive and well at LaCreek National Wildlife Refuge in December. Where he has been for the past 17 months since release and how he managed to find his way back to LaCreek is a mystery.

There were swans at Mingo in the late 1970s. I think they were released there, and I'm not sure if they really established a migratory pattern to return in subsequent winters. Both species do occur in small numbers now in winter.

> Please refresh my memory.  What year did we get the first swans at Riverlands?  Seems like there were only 5 or 6, all wearing 'neckties'.  Can remember them coming right up to the guardrails along Riverlands Way, down at the gas-station end of the bay.  Also remember people trying to hand-feed them.
