The trumpeter swan is the largest extant species of waterfowl. Adults usually measure 138-165 cm (4 ft 6 in-5 ft 5 in) long, though large males can exceed 180 cm (5 ft 11 in) in total length.[2][6][7][8] The weight of adult birds is typically 7-13.6 kg (15-30 lb). Possibly due to seasonal variation based on food access and variability due to age, average weights in males have been reported to range from 10.9 to 12.7 kg (24 to 28 lb) and from 9.4 to 10.3 kg (21 to 23 lb) in females.[2][9][10][11] It is one of the heaviest living birds or animals capable of flight. Alongside the mute swan (Cygnus olor), Dalmatian pelican (Pelecanus crispus), kori bustard (Ardeotis kori), and Andean condor (Vultur gryphus), it is one of a handful to weigh in excess of 10 kg (22 lb) between the sexes, and one survey of wintering trumpeters found it averaged second only to the condor in mean mass.[12][13] The trumpeter swans wingspan ranges from 185 to 250 cm (6 ft 1 in to 8 ft 2 in), with the wing chord measuring ...
Trumpeter swan: Trumpeter swan, Black-billed species (Cygnus cygnus buccinator) of swan, named for its far-carrying, low-pitched call. About 6 ft (1.8 m) long, with a 10-ft (3-m) wingspan,
We collected carcasses of 52 common eider Somateria mollissima adults and ducklings and blood samples from 11 nesting eider hens in the Gulf of Finland near Helsinki in 1994, 1995 and 1996. Samples of liver tissue were analysed for arsenic, cadmium, chromium, copper, iron, lead, magnesium, manganese, mercury, molybdenum, selenium and zinc. Blood was analysed for lead, mercury and selenium. Most of the 21 adults examined at necropsy were emaciated with empty gizzards, and no ingested shotgun pellets or other metal were found in any of the birds. Three adult females had a combination of lesions and tissue lead residues characteristic of lead poisoning. Two of these birds had acid-fast intranuclear inclusion bodies in renal epithelial cells and high concentrations of lead (73.4 and 73.3 ppm; all liver residues reported on dry weight basis) in their livers. The third was emaciated with a liver lead concentration of 47.9 ppm. An...

High-throughput or Next-Generation sequencing (NGS) has proven to be a time-efficient and cost-effective technique for the sequencing of whole-genomes. Despite its benefits, high-throughput sequencing is remaining a relatively nascent technique for phylogenetic analyses (McCormack 2013). We performed sequence assembly and analysis of genomic reads from a wild Tundra Swan (C. columbianus) and a wild Trumpeter Swan (Cygnus buccinator). The reads were assembled into Contigs that were later run through a custom Perl script designed to extract the differences between sequences. We also performed further analysis of the genetic relatedness between swan species using sequences of nuclear gene encoding the chromo-helicase-DNA binding domain (CHD) and associated introns that involved alignments and phylogenetic tree construction. Additionally, polymorphisms in the mitochondrial control region (D-loop) of Trumpeters, Tundra Swans, and hybrids were used for phylogenetic trees analysis. The phylogenetic ...
In April and May 2008, whooper swans (Cygnus cygnus) were found dead in Hokkaido in Japan. In this study, an adult whooper swan found dead beside Lake Saroma was pathologically examined and the identified H5N1 influenza virus isolates were genetically and antigenically analyzed. Pathological findings indicate that the swan died of severe congestive edema in the lungs. Phylogenetic analysis of the HA genes of the isolates revealed that they are the progeny viruses of isolates from poultry and wild birds in China, Russia, Korea, and Hong Kong. Antigenic analyses indicated that the viruses are distinguished from the H5N1 viruses isolated from wild birds and poultry before 2007. The chickens vaccinated with A/duck/Hokkaido/Vac-1/2004 (H5N1) survived for 14 days after challenge with A/whooper swan/Hokkaido/1/2008 (H5N1), although a small amount of the challenge virus was recovered from the tissues of the birds. These findings indicate that H5N1 highly pathogenic avian influenza viruses are circulating in

Hands were placed on the backs of the birds to restrain them and, in a well-practiced maneuver, slipped around both sides to grasp leathery black legs. The feathery bundles were then hoisted into canoes and kayaks for a trip to a shoreline processing station. Once captured, the birds sat stoically as their long, straight necks periscoped between the knees of the paddlers. "Its a privilege to get this close to such magnificent birds," said volunteer Anne Lacey, who also works at the International Crane Foundation in Baraboo. Just 25 years ago, it would have been rare to see - and unthinkable to capture - a trumpeter swan here. Hunting and habitat loss wiped the birds out of the state in the late 1800s. The swans resonant, sonorous call - the source of its name - was absent from Wisconsin for more than 100 years when the DNR began its Trumpeter Swan Recovery Program in 1987, according to state wildlife officials. Thanks to the innovative program, the birds have come back from zero in 1987 to ...

The Milky Way and other galaxies in the universe harbor many young star clusters and associations that each contain hundreds to thousands of hot, massive, young stars known as O and B stars. The star cluster Cygnus OB2 contains more than 60 O-type stars and about a thousand B-type stars. At a relatively nearby distance to Earth of about 5,000 light years, Cygnus OB2 is the closest massive cluster. Deep observations with NASAs Chandra X-ray Observatory of Cygnus OB2 have been used to detect the X-ray emission from the hot outer atmospheres, or coronas, of young stars in the cluster and to probe how these great star factories form and evolve. About 1,700 X-ray sources were detected, including about 1,450 thought to be stars in the cluster. In this image, X-rays from Chandra (blue) have been combined with infrared data from NASAs Spitzer Space Telescope (red) and optical data from the Isaac Newton Telescope (orange). Young stars ranging in age from one million to seven million years were ...

The white cygnet illustrates the fact that Mute Swans (Cygnus olor) have a colour form called immutabilis, or unchanging, and also known as Polish swan. The mutation is sex-linked and recessive, and occurs in a gene located in the Z sex chromosome. Unlike most mammals, female birds have two different sex chromosomes (ZW), while males have two of the same kind (ZZ). If the female has the mutation, she will be white as a cygnet and will moult into an adult white plumage directly. A male needs to have two mutated forms of the gene to be a Polish swan. Immutabilis adults are hard to tell apart when they are in the water, as the only trait that is different is the colour of the feet, which is paler. The immutabilis form is rarer in populations than the normal form, and it is more common in female swans ...

AGILE is detecting enhanced gamma-ray emission from a source positionally consistent with the microquasar Cygnus X-3. Integrating during the period 2011-05-28 07:58:37 UT to 2011-05-29 06:02:51 UT (MJD=55709.33-55710.25) the AGILE-GRID detected gamma-ray emission above 100 MeV from a source at Galactic coordinates (l, b) = (79.8, 0.3) +/- 0.8 (stat.) +/- 0.1 (syst.) deg, and flux F > 300 x 10^-8 photons/cm^2/s above 100 MeV (1-day multi-source-analysis significance in spinning mode ~4 sigma). The multi-source likelihood analysis was carried out taking into account the gamma-ray sources in the field including the nearby pulsars (PSR J2021+3651, PSR J2021+4026, PSR J2032+4127). We notice that the hard X-ray lightcurve of Cygnus X-3 as monitored by the BAT/Swift instrument (public data available at http:///heasarc.gsfc.nasa.gov/docs/swift/results/transients/CygX-3 ) shows an overall decreasing trend starting on MJD ~ 55680.

Each year REGI receives many Trumpeter Swans suffering from lead poisoning. Lead poisoning is a human-caused problem. Lead is accessed by swans when they forage on the bottom of ponds, streams or lakes. Our lakes throughout the country have been used for fishing and hunting of waterfowl for over a hundred years. Recently, the use of lead shot has been made illegal for waterfowl hunting in many states. It is, however, still available for use in fishing and other types of hunting. Unfortunately, lead is pervasive in the environment. It does not decompose. It will be at the bottom of bodies of water forever. Wildlife is particularly at risk to contacting the lead shot and sinkers in years when water levels are low. Lead is highly toxic. That is why we no longer have lead in the paint we use in our homes and unleaded gas is used in our cars. The fact is that a piece of lead the size of a grain of sand can poison a human child. You can imagine what a bit of lead shot can do to wildlife species much ...

The aim of this report is to present data on the trends in population numbers and other vital statistics for inland colonial waterbirds and marsh birds in Canadas 16 terrestrial ecozones+. The data were solicited from members of the Inland Colonial Waterbird and Marsh Bird Chapter of the Canadian Waterbird Technical Committee and other waterbird biologists from across the country. There were surprisingly few long-term datasets identified, particularly for some ecozones+. Some ecozones+ had no data (Taiga Cordillera, Taiga Shield, and Hudson Plains), some had historical data but no current data (Boreal Cordillera, Western Interior Basin, Montane Cordillera, and Prairies), some had data awaiting analysis, and some had recent but no historical data. Nine ecozones+ had one or more dataset of five or more years that was used to give preliminary data; some had much more data than others.

The trees are in their autumn beauty, The woodland paths are dry, Under the October twilight the water Mirrors a still sky; Upon the brimming water among the stones Are nine and fifty swans. The nineteenth Autumn has come upon me Since I first made my count; I saw, before I had well finished, All suddenly mount And scatter wheeling in great broken rings Upon their clamorous wings. I have looked upon those brilliant creatures, And now my heart is sore. Alls changed since I, hearing at twilight, The first time on this shore, The bell-beat of their wings above my head, Trod with a lighter tread. Unwearied still, lover by lover, They paddle in the cold, Companionable streams or climb the air; Their hearts have not grown old; Passion or conquest, wander where they will, Attend upon them still. But now they drift on the still water Mysterious, beautiful; Among what rushes will they build, By what lakes edge or pool Delight mens eyes, when I awake some day To find they have flown away ...

ezcol_1half]. Holy Terror is one of 5 tracks to be featured on the upcoming Mutes EP entitled Starvation Age, which shall be released on June 29th through One Note Forever records.. The midland-based, genre-spanning quartet (having evolved from the solo ambient project of frontman James) self-recorded the EP in a Leeds basement on analog equipment last year, the forthcoming release chews up the more ambient, restrained aspects of Mutes solo releases and spits them out in a far noisier, ragged and yet considered form.. Holy Terror, the first song to be taken from the EP, has been recently premiered on the405. Encapsulating the finer points of Mutes sonic arsenal, the recently released track at first hammers away with razor-sharp guitars, droning vocals and walls of feedback. But as the urgency of the initial assault gives way to soothing ambience and docile bass lines, it becomes clear that Mutes are not disposed to monotony.. [/ezcol_1half]. [ezcol_1half_end]. ...
I thought a lot about the studio while I was in China. During the seminar, we spent a lot of time sitting in classrooms listening to artist presentations, in addition to lectures about the state of religion in China. We visited historic sites, attended church, and moved through various points of interest in each city. Before departing for China, our team had been given a list of books to read. This gave us an opportunity to become more familiar with Chinese culture prior to arriving in Beijing. One book that especially impressed me was Wild Swans by Jung Chang. It told the story of three Chinese women who had lived through, or in close proximity to, Chinas Cultural Revolution. While this book is currently banned in China, I found myself viewing everything through the lens of its story. Wild Swans made me aware of the psychological weight that can be embedded in a place. I found myself questioning what I saw while I was there, while also recognizing that I was contending with my own projection. ...
Return to my illustration of a wetland owned as private property. The wetland is the owners. It is not the governments wetland. If government says the owner cannot fill the wetland because it is habitat for migratory waterfowl, then we should ask if this regulated land use harms the person or property of others. If it does, then government is not taking the persons property. If it does not, government is taking the persons wetland for its own use. No one else owns the habitat in this wetland but the individual owner. Therefore, filling the wetland cannot harm to the property of others. Perhaps the government will say that filling the wetland harms migratory waterfowl since there will be less habitat and hence a smaller population of waterfowl than would otherwise be the case. I think this makes lots of sense. But, who owns the waterfowl? No other person owns the waterfowl. Perhaps we should say that government owns the waterfowl. I think this makes lots of sense as well. Filling the wetland ...
In 1977 Tamiya finally answered the fervent requests of modern Soviet modelers and released a kit of a T-62 Model 1972 tank as a "T-62A" (the actual T-62A was really the Article 165 tank with a rifled 100mm D-54TS gun, none of which appear to ever have been built in series). Hundreds of them began to appear on "threat" desks in the US Army and other NATO forces. But the kit was based on fuzzy photos of captured Syrian tanks and other details, and even with a book put out by Tamiya at the time on how to model the T-62 it was off the mark. Its major flaws were: wrong profile to turret, wrong hull shape, and suspension too low (it was apparently based on a burned-out Syrian tank and thus the weak suspension had it much lower than its actual 471.5mm ground clearance should have been (about 13.5mm in scale ...

Thankfully, McKeown also shared ways to protect your health. "You can influence your bodys oxygenation by breathing normally. Normal breathing is through the nose, light and quiet. Notice how you breathe through the day and practice how you breathe during your sleep.". One signal that you may not be breathing well at night is snoring. Said McKeown, "If you think about snoring, its the exchange of a large volume through a narrow space. People who snore breathe hard. So what we want to do is open up the nose but we also want to bring down breathing volume. So, theres breathing re-education: simple exercises that you practice during the day and that help reset the breathing center in the brain, and then your breathing is lighter during sleep. And then open up the nose through nasal dilators, for example Mute.". Mute helps open the airway during sleep. "If you look at my nostrils, theyre asymmetrical, theyre different sizes so I need to open up the airway." He described how Mute does the task. ...
