Mute Swan Reporting Form
Use this form to report Mute Swan sightings for tracking purposes. Mute Swans are not native to North America yet over the years have been popular with waterfowl fanciers and have become established in many parts of North America usually to the detriment of native waterfowl species. Mute Swans are being reported more and more regularly in Kansas. A group of ornithologists/researchers in Kansas are interested in tracking where they are being seen and how many are being seen. You can help by filling out this web based form with your sighting information. It should take no more than 2 to 3 minutes to fill out this form.
An excellent on line identification guide for Mute Swan, as well as our native Trumpeter and Tundra Swans, can be viewed at The Trumpeter Swan Society web page.
Questions, comments and suggestions can be directed to Chuck Otte.
And, as noted below, for the longer (description, habitat, etc) boxes, just type in the information without using the RETURN or ENTER key on your keyboard. The text will automatically wrap around to fill the box, and the RETURN characters also make data processing a bit more difficult.
