    I found this fella walking south - she has a broken wing. It's a Tundra Swan. I walked her into my pen and called the local game warden who came by and picked her up. He said that they would call the local zoos to see if any of them would take her. She was quite calm for a wild bird.

    Quote:I asked the local game warden if we could keep and he said "no, Tundra Swans are a federally protected bird"

    Very pretty. At least she has a chance for a nice place to live. Hope they find a zoo for her. Can you call and find out if they did?
