When Gabrielson & Jewett wrote 'Birds of the Pacific Northwest' in 1940 they said: 'The Trumpeter Swan, the largest and most magnificent North American waterfowl, is practically extinct and has been for many years.'----'Whether or not these few remaining birds are enough to increase their numbers remains to be seen.'
