Over the last week end 2/14 my family and I observed a pair of Trumpeter swans, one had a yellow neck band with a 3 digit #, we were in Henderson county along the mississippi river they stayed on the lake all week end along with several thousand other can I find out more info on the banded swan?

If the swans were wearing yellow neck bands they may be part of Wisconsin DNR's project to reintroduce the trumpeter swan. You can find more information at:
