And FOS Wood Duck. One of my latest FOS for that. Strange.

Anyway, I decided to count that swan as a Trumpeter based on overall body size. I saw the bill to say dark. That’s about it.
The swans were all the way against the other shore. Scanning from the main parking area. A bit far for a detailed bill study.
I had hoped for a good study. One of the Mute Swans was constantly near the Trumpeter. I never realized how big Trumpeter was
before this. Judging size on a lone bird would be beyond me.

I am open to discussion though.

Good birding all.
