Subject: [JERSEYBI] Trumpeters
Can anyone else confirm four to six trumpeter swans at Assunpink Reservoir? I thought I saw four today (mixed adults and juveniles) with the aid of another birder's scope. However a friend seems to have seen the same birds and says they look smaller than mutes..and have a spot before their eyes. I have a photo but taken from too great a distance to allow for good detail.
