Swans may be off the endangered list but danger still lurks in area waters
It is that time of year when bird watchers, nature photographers and curious tourists migrate to Hudson to see our unique population of trumpeter swans. Over 200 people visited just last weekend. The species was reintroduced to Wisconsin in 1987 and removed from the endangered species list in 2009. But they are still in danger by something lurking in area waters -- lead sinkers from fishing lines.
