Trumpeter Swans

 Over the weekend we took a drive to Monticello, a town along the Mississippi River, to view Trumpeter Swans. They are the heaviest birds, native to North America.  In addition to being big and beautiful, we discovered they're also quite loud... hence their name!

It was just 50 years ago that a law was passed protecting endangered species.  Let's all give a big honk for that!
