The picture shown in your article is of Trumpeter Swans, not Mute Swans. So, thank you for showing people that the Trumpeters can look like a pretty aggressive bird as well. This picture does not really show the whole truth either. This looks like it could be a parent chasing off his offspring, because, for those of us who really watch swan's behaviors, we know that they do this when it's time for them to leave the family and venture on their own. Perhaps if people would ask the DEC where their New York studies are. Are they using Maryland studies? Maryland has no natural lakes and the Chesapeake Bay is no better now then it was after they slaughtered all their swans. These agencies do not care if a bird is native or non native. They just want to hunt the TROPHY BIRD, which is the Trumpeter. Please New Yorkers do the right thing and keep fighting for these swans...all swans
