Just a quick note on this bird: As previously correctly reported by Stan
Stahl there has been an adult Tundra Swan in Museum Pond at Middle Creek
WMA since Saturday, which continues this morning. ID points are eye thinly
connected to black facial skin, rounded head, flat U-shaped base of culmen,
and yellow spot at base of upper mandible. Since then, however, two reports
have come in to eBird listing it as a Trumpeter. Just wanted to try to
avoid any confusion in case anyone has received these reports via eBird and
is considering chasing.
