  • Five Cygnets take to Teton Valley Water
    each winter to feed along the Teton River but there are no documented swans that use the valley for nesting Trumpeter swans are faithful birds connecting to the place they were raised In order for trumpeter swans to nest in Teton Valley they must bond to a wetland as cygnets young swans learning to forage for food as well as taking their first flights For this group of captive bred swans a foster mother will help them learn to feed on their own and to keep them safe The introduced cygnets will join wild birds during the fall migration and with a little luck will return to their surrogate home in Teton Valley to raise their own young in the future Our goal is for the swans to imprint on this wetland so they return over the next few years and when they are ready attract a mate and begin raising their young here Teton Regional Land Trust Executive Director Chet Work explained Trumpeter Swans are one of our region s most iconic birds They are the heaviest bird species in North America but their size seems less impressive when compared to their elegance and their charismatic nature A habitat assessment of Teton Valley completed last winter ranked area wetlands for their suitability seclusion and landowner willingness to participate in the project Several properties rose to the top of the list and a single property was selected It is possible that up to four protected wetland properties will receive swan cygnets in the next 5 years Over the past 200 years many important wetlands and important nesting areas for trumpeter swans were lost in Teton Valley With the help of the Teton Regional Land Trust and other conservation groups local landowners have preserved important habitat and have also enhanced or created wetlands These protected private lands now offer hope to help restore the local nesting swan population Trumpeter Swans prefer secluded nesting ponds with enough surface water for them to take off as well as accessible food shallow unpolluted water and little or no human disturbance Many of the wetlands associated with properties protected by the Land Trust and local families in the Teton Valley are ideal places to introduce the young swans because of their protection high quality restored vegetation wetlands and little disturbance in the surrounding property The cygnets were raised in Jackson WY by the Wyoming Wetlands Society prior to Friday s release Drew Reed of Wyoming Wetlands enjoyed sharing the release experience with a group of young budding swan enthusiasts We re excited to watch for the return of these swans in the spring Wyoming Wetlands Society s Drew Reed said With any luck we ll have a breeding pair starting a family in a few years This process will take several years of work to ensure nesting pairs loyal to Teton Valley but the hope is that once they begin to breed here on their own we will begin to see the Greater Yellowstone flock
