Based on the author’s personal experience with the Swan Research Program in Warrenton, Virginia, this book is a detailed and innovative guide to swan care. Augmented by numerous drawings and charts, it provides extensive information on the trapping, feeding, health, and year-round care of captive swans. All seven swan species are discussed, with special attention given to the Trumpeter and Tundra swans (the two species native to the U.S.), as well as to the invasive, non-native Mute swan. In just over 150 pages, the manual covers not only all aspects of swan care, but also seeks to raise environmental awareness and to address various moral and legal ramifications of the keeping of captive swans.
