Date: 6/8/18 8:57 am From: Bob Schutsky <info...> Subject: Probable Trumpeter Swans, Southern Lancaster County
There are two adult swans on the Susquehanna River across from my house this morning. They give every indication of being Trumpeter Swans. The bills appear very flat, not concave as in a Tundra Swan. The heads seem rather flat, not rounded as in a Tundra Swan. And both swans appear larger than a typical Tundra Swan, with heavier necks. The morning light is good, but they are at least 3/4 of the way across the river, much closer to the York County shoreline. Thus they are approximately one mile away, which makes a positive identification just a bit tricky. I hope that someone is able to see them at closer range and confirm the ID.
