The Trumpeter swan previously reported on June 19 and 29 was still present on July 11, 15, and 19 on Big Alkali Lake near Benton Crossing. Wide yellow neckband with 8YZ or 8Y7. Has anybody checked this band for origin? Also, on Crowley Lake July 15 and 19, 4 Loons which I believe were juvenile or nonbreeding adult Pacific Loons. On July 19, 2 juvenile Common Moorhens were on one of the lily ponds at Benton Hot Springs
