Trumpeter Swan Counts 2014/2015

Although Trumpeter Swan numbers in the Comox Valley appear low this year, the population overall is healthy. Numbers have increased south on Vancouver Island & in Washington, so the population here may have reached a balance given the capacity of the available habitat.
