Can you be a bit more geographically specific about where these water bodies are in Anne Arundel? There is at least a pair of Trumpeter Swans that range widely around the Galesville area (south of 214 sort of centralized around Muddy Creek Road and Galesville Road). Often, they are found on Muddy Creek visible from the Discovery Trail at the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center. It's pretty neat to hear them when they fly over as the french horn sound is very different and distinctive!

Hi, not a knowledgeable birder but an avid watcher of wildlife in our little piece of the Chesapeake, Eli Cove at the end of Stoney Creek. The attached photos of a swan that came to visit we think is a trumpter(deep French horn voice and no yellow spot) and doesnt appear to be banded. Any additional info anyone can provide is most welcome!
