Hi all,

Last night I received a second-hand report of a SMEW that was seen at
McFadden Marsh on Finley National Wildlife Refuge on March 1st.

No further details at this time, except to say that the observer is
highly credible as a waterfowl observer.

Good birding,

P.S. Just to chime in on the swan that Evan Centanni photographed at
Ankeny NWR on Sunday:
I concur that this is a Tundra Swan. In addition to the points mentioned
by Alan C., the evenly rounded back and neck proportions also support
the identification as a Tundra Swan. This looks a lot like the bird that
John Sullivan photographed a week or so ago.
