What I learned during the years that young Trumpeter Swan #960 (Oxbow Lake) and his brother #962 (Schoolhouse Pond) were in Maryland was that when trumpeters reaching mating age (4-5 years) they return to the place they were born to find a mate and nest. During the time the young brothers were in Maryland, they were known to fly around visiting other ponds. But they both seem to return to Oxbow Lake and Schoolhouse Pond as their Maryland homes away from Ontario.
