Once down to a few, trumpeter swans rule in Monticello

Your daily dose of sweetness comes, not at all surprisingly, from KARE 11’s Boyd Huppert.

We’re guessing the trumpeter swans who congregate in the open, warmer water from the Monticello, Minn., nuclear plant on the Mississippi River, would be just fine on their own.

But a man made a promise to his dying wife.


The daily swan feed occurs around 10:30 a.m. You can watch it, or just occupy your day watching the swans, on Monticello’s live swan cam.
