An adult trumpeter swan preens with its four still-developing cygets in late August 2012 at Turnbull National Wildlife Refuge’s Middle Pond. One cygnet alread had died from the clutch produced in June. One of these cygnets also would die before the birds’ wings developed enough for them to fledge in October.
