I am working on the final round of revisions for the Nevada Breeding Bird Atlas and wanted to know what the current status of mute swans in the state is. During the Atlas years there were 1 or maybe 2 pairs breeding in Reno (one pair at UNR, another bird - that I think never bred - in the SW part of town, near the old TNC offices). Is this still the case, or have these birds disappeared? Does anyone know of any other mute swan records anywhere in the state in the last few years.
