Swans

My spouse and I were able to visit the Kellogg Bird Sanctuary on Friday; her first visit. In addition to the most common swan – the Mute Swan – the sanctuary hosts Trumpeter Swans and an Australian Black Swan. The Mute Swan has an orange beak and the Trumpeter Swan has a black beak (although immature Trumpeter Swans have a red and black beak). I enjoy the majestic beauty of the swans, especially in flight. I hope you enjoy these swan images. As always, your comments are appreciated.
