  1. Hello. I am writing an article about bird movement for the MT Naturalist magazine, and I was wondering if I could include some information on where the Blackfoot swans go in the winter. It would also be great to include a picture of one of the re-sighted swans, like the one of “Swan 5A9 near Challis, ID on 10/31/2012”. Would this be possible? If so, it would be great if you could fill in the blanks in this sentence:

    Most Trumpeter Swans breeding in the Blackfoot Valley overwinter in xxxx, but they have been re-sighted as far away as xx, xx, and xx.

    Or if their overwintering locations are so dispersed that the above sentence doesn’t make sense, could you submit a few sentences that summarize their movement? Please let me know how to credit any information or photos you are willing to share. Thanks, Kate Stone
