The Trumpeter swans’ range historically spanned from Alaska on the west coast of North America through to the border of Ontario and Quebec in the east before they were hunted to near extinction in the early 1900’s. Today they survive mostly along the west coast although there are small populations that reside year-round in the US midwest and in Ontario thanks to re-introduction projects spearheaded by the Trumpeter Swan Society and their partners. I was thrilled to get the opportunity to photograph these magnificent birds in Northern Ontario.
This particular population was re-introduced to the area in 1996 using eggs collected in Alaska and Alberta, and it continues to evolve with numbers currently estimated at 1,200 throughout the Canadian province. The trumpeter swan is North America’s largest flying bird, with males averaging over 26 pounds and reaching 6 feet in length.
