(AP) A whistling swan involved in a Canada-United Slates research project is dead after being sliot illegally this month.

It is illegal to kill the Lswans in Maryland, the state with the largest winter population of the birds. The bird wjll be mounted and displayed at Eastern Neck Na- tional Wildlife Refuge near Rock Hall, Julian said. The bird was banded Aug. 10, 1970, with the number D-893 at Mackenzie Delta in the North- west Territories, a Johns Hop- kins University computer prin- tout shows. The university in Baltimore is co-operating in a long-range study of whistling swan migration patterns. The bird, with its red plastic neck band, was reported spotted three times on the Chopfank River this year. Survey information indicates a female swan was tagged the same day in the N.W.T. and was sighted -at identical times mlh D-893 on the Choplank, in- dicating the dead bird was one of a meted pair, Julian said. The swan project was started in 1902 when air airliner collided with a flock of the birds ovei Maryland.
