Trumpeter Swans in the Snake River near Jackson Wyoming. What a treat to see these magnificent birds. Everyone loves swans. In 1968 there were only 64 trumpeter swans counted in the interior of the U.S. with a total of 3722 in all of North America. Thanks to conservation efforts, in 2005 there were 4,647 in the interior and more than 34,000! in North America. Which proves there is plenty of room in this world for all creatures. We just need to make an effort to live in harmony with nature.
