March 24, 2011 Trumpeter Swans near Carleton Place

A pair of Trumpeter Swans are back on the Jock River near Carleton Place. The pair first appeared last summer and produced 4 young. This was the first breeding record for the Ottawa-Gatineau District. These bird are likely for the Rideau Lakes population that has been increasing in numbers over the past decade. The Ottawa-Gatineau District still have only a couple of documented records for the 50 KM radius.

A recent addition to the Ottawa-Gatineau District this species will likely become a regular breeder in outlaying areas.
