2/13/14 2 Elk Herds in Boxley Valley, Wild Trumpeters Still on MIll Pond

Elk returned to the fields after all the snow storms. Two herds yesterday, one in the second Ponca field, and a second down by Smith Creek.

I am sure the bulls are around, but I didn't see them when I did my survey yesterday. Yesterday was the first day I have been able to get out in about 2 weeks. Our road is a sheet of ice.

Be sure to visit the mill pond and check out the uncollared trumpeter swans. There are 4 of them and they do not seem to mix with the non-migrating collared swans. They have been on the pond now for a few weeks. It will be interesting to see how long they stay.
