1.  These swans, Koog , a Whistler aka Tundra swan, and Tina, aTrumpeter, were birds in a sanctuary in Juneau, AK.  They had become mates but never had goslings.  One day Koog was taken away to another sanctuary. Tina pined for him and would have nothing to do with the other very much.  One day a small plane flew near the sanctuary which they did daily. Tina began honking and flapping her wings wildly.  Later that day Koog was returned to her. He was in the airplane.  Later on Koog and Tina produced an offspring which has been called a gosling. There is a painting of them all together here, too. Tina is in the background in this painting but is actually, being a Trumpeter, larger than Koog. This is shown in the "Family Portrait" painted for the owners of the sancturary.
