      The Idaho Department of Fish and Game is once again asking for your
      help in looking for collared swans. Budget cuts have reduced the
      Departments ability to hire personnel designated to look for collared
      swans. Federal and other state agencies have experienced similar
      cutbacks therefore routine swan surveys will be greatly reduced this year.

      Almost 400 trumpeter swans in southeastern Idaho were collared during
      the winters of 2001-2004. Trumpeters have also been collared in
      surrounding states and in several Canadian provinces. The survival and
      movements of these collared swans provide biologists with information
      critical to the management and conservation of trumpeters range wide.

      Neck collars are 3-4" tall and can be green, yellow, red, white, or
      many other colors depending on collar age and color fading. All
      collars have an alpha numeric code. Some collars may also have a radio
      and antennae attached.

      Project cooperators are asking that the all collared trumpeter swans
      be reported to the Idaho Department of Fish and Game at phone:
      208-525-7290, or by e-mail to Lauri Hanauska-Brown at
      lhanausk@... . Please be sure to include in your report:
      collar color, alpha numeric code if possible, location of observation,
      date and your contact information.

      Your cooperation is greatly appreciated!
