Trumpeters are being reported at wetlands this winter in both northwest and west-central Missouri.

KANSAS CITY Mo -- Trumpeter swans offer advantages for people who enjoy watching wildlife in winter. They’re big, beautiful, bright white and they will often frequent easily accessible lakes at public conservation areas or city parks.
The trumpeters, once considered almost extinct, are the largest native waterfowl species in North America with wing spans up to seven feet, long necks, snow white plumage on adults and graceful motions on the water.
