The trumpeter swan preferred a habitat where they had accessible food and a place to take off and land. They also liked wide slow rivers for breeding.
A single shot from a shotgun can kill a 30 lbs bird, 3 shots from a rifle does the same damage. Even if they survive the shooting one of the most common ways a trumpeter swan dies is from lead poisoning from guns.
Good Luck, Billy
You too, Willy
I got one!
...And this is the outcome
The habitat of the trumpeter swan...so calm...so relaxing and suits their needs perfectly.
But they're constantly getting destroyed for construction
