- Reported Nov 09, 2019 11:40 by Andrew Ray

- Comments: "Due to the Trumpeter remaining mostly isolated from the rest
of the Tundra Swans, and the distance across the marsh where it was lurking
(about 550 ft), it was difficult to tell relative sizes through binoculars,
but was a little more apparent after viewing my pictures. Compared to the
Tundras, this swan had a larger, more stout bill that made a V-shape on its
forehead when connecting to the white feathers versus the gentler U-shape
border seen in Tundras."
