Subject:Re: Swans at Sucker Lake

Sucker Lake Park is located in Vadnais Heights between highway 95 on the 
north and County Road F, east of Rice Street. There are 2 parking lots. The 
northern one off Rice Street is closed in the winter. The southern one off 
County F is open.

From the south parking lot follow the paved trail north for about 1/4 mi to 
a marked path on the right (east). Take this path about 100 yards to the 
man-made channel between Sucker Lake and Lake Vadnais. There is a footbridge 
at this point. You can stand on the bridge to observe the channel but do not 
cross it. Take the left fork (north) and follow the path along the west bank 
of the channel up to the south end of Sucker lake itself. The water is open 
here and you will see hundreds of mallards and 20+ trumpeter swans. They 
congregate between the bridge and the open water at the end of Sucker Lake.

The swans and mallards in the channel are quite tame and you sometimes can 
approach them within 5 or 10 feet. (Some people feed them.) If you get too 
close they calmly paddle to the opposite side of the channel, about 20 feet 

Alternately, the trumpeters may be at the north end of Sucker Lake. This an 
additional half-mile walk so check the north end of the lake from the south 
end with your binocs. To get to the north end, follow the paved trail to the 
north parking lot and to the north channel.

I haven't been there for a couple weeks but as long as the lakes in the area 
are still frozen, the trumpeters can be found there.

Subject: [mou-net] Swans at Sucker Lake

hi to the group-saw a post here about a month ago that a flock of about 40 
swans had taken up residency at sucker lake.  it's such a nice day today I 
was thinking of driving over there and trying to grab some photos.  does 
anyone know if they are still there? if so, is it easy to spot them ... what 
side of the lake do they tend to inhabit (I haven't been to sucker lake)??
thanks in advance for any info.
