Rare trumpeter swans found nesting in northern Missouri | LJWorld.com
With their secret now public knowledge, two northern Missouri residents are basking in the glow of a historic blessed event — the birth of three trumpeter swans.
Bud and Debbie Neptune didn't know the big birds had taken up residence at a pond on their property until their son, Scott, came to visit during turkey hunting season.
He spotted one of the elegant, snow-white creatures on his parent's 1.5-acre pond.
That's so excellent. These are beautiful animals and it's good to see that they're doing well.
