Solo, the trumpeter swan that’s been returning to Turnbull National Wildlife Refuge south of Cheney for at least 35 years and possibly up to 48, takes off from Winslow Pond after returning to the season’s first ice-free water on the refuge on Jan. 25, 2010. He’s with his mate and the first cygnets hatched on the refuge in 22 years.
