Trumpeter Swans
These swans are believed to be Trumpeters because of the flat profile from crown to tip of bill, and the black in front of the eye not having a "pinched in" look. Send comments on ID to davidlambeth58201@yahoo.com. Will be reviewed by NDRBC.
Taken: 2005-06-25 Agnes Marsh, Grand Forks County, 1-2 miles west of Orr.
