Flat Creek Morning
National Elk Refuge, Jackson Hole, Wyoming
As dawn comes to Flat Creek and the mist rises from the water, a tranquil scene comes to life each morning. The day’s first light stirs the nesting Trumpeter Swans into action as the female cleans and repairs the nest and checks her eggs, turning them periodically, and the male starts foraging for the pair. Trumpeter Swans generally mate for life and often use the same nest year after year. The nearby Ring-necked Ducks are frequent, and tolerated, foraging companions.
