Friends, these Trumpeter Swans are attacking three other swans who have occupied the favorite preening and bathing spot on Phantom Lake in Crex Meadows. I always think of these birds as floating peacefully on the lake, but this image shows the territorial nature of the adults that persists even into fall. The red stained feathers will soon be replaced by fresh white feathers and they will head south. til Tomorrow MJ
