Subject: Re: Tracking trumpeter swan in AR leads back to Iowa research group
I would like to add. I give Verlon Abram a special thanks for what he does
for the swans and allowing all of us as guest to see them. He has told me
he spends around 6 to 8 hundred dollars each month for corn. But the hard
part is,he buckets and feeds around 12 five gallon buckets of corn each
day. On the bitter cold days this doubles. He picks up trash dumps that
people have left near his ponds but he continues to welcome us all to see
them. He told me, it warms his heart to see the children see the swans.
Believe me, he wants all to come see the swans. He has said to me, all are
welcome, just respect the swans and the land.

Good story Karen
