Trumpeter swan we DID see

Sault Ste Marie, MI Today was a rather strange day. Our credit card number was stolen so much of the day was spent taking care of the problems that caused. Since it was also a travel day, the only sight-seeing we did was at Seney National Wildlife Refuge. The Refuge was established in 1935 for the protection and production of migratory birds and other wildlife. Nearly two-thirds of the Refuge is classified as wetland. They say there are over 200 bird species, 26 fish species and 50 mammals there. We saw nothing but a number of trumpeter swans. Supposedly there were otters spotted recently around one of the ponds but, although we searched mightily, was saw none.
