Trumpeter Swan K80 - background information

Last September IanP reported seeing tagged Trumpeter Swan K80 near Lake of Bays. It has taken quite a while, but I've now received some background information from Kyna Intini who looks after the database. I also received word from Bev Kingdon yesterday that they have approximately 125 Trumpeters at LaSalle Park in Burlington but very few cygnets this year.

Here is Kyna's information about K80:
"Thank you for reporting Trumpeter swan K80, he seemed to be a popular bird this summer because I got a number of reports on him. He was hatched in 2013 to parents 175 & K75 who nested near Washago. He made it down to LaSalle this winter. On Wednesday I banded a lone cygnet at LaSalle and it went and hung out with K80. I suspect it might be a sibling from this years K75 & unbanded mate’s brood. I will watch and see if this cygnet rejoins a family or stays with K80."
