Could this be a rare species of winter whale? No, its actually the bottom half of a trumpeter swan. This swan is enjoying a fine meal in the pond adjacent to the 2nd fairway of the Aspen Glen Club golf course. There were three more swans and a dozen or so geese spotted on the pond on this snowy day. The swans have also been seen along Roaring Fork River.
Our research shows that trumpeter swans are the largest waterfowl in North America. They are also the largest swan in the world. Pairs arrive at mating grounds after ice melts to start their family. Their diet consists of aquatic vegetation. With a wing span of up to ten feet, they are truly a sight to behold!
