Putting down roots, giving them wings

ELY– Many drivers along Ely road have recently been treated to an uncommon sight.

The male and female pair was released on May 18 as part of an Iowa Department of Natural Resource (DNR) program to repopulate trumpeter swans in Iowa. Prior to the settlement of Iowa, the bird was common in the state until the 1930s, when the swan population began to diminish. Since 1993 the DNR has been working to repopulate Iowa with trumpeter swans.
