Birding at the Sarita

Dave and I took a short trip out to the Sarita River to have a look at who would be eating the last of the salmon carcasses. We were expecting eagles, but also got a wonderful surprise – a juvenile trumpeter swan! (It may be a tundra swan… can any birders out there confirm?)

    I’m fairly certain now that I saw a Trumpeter Swan. Thanks to Andy for pointing me to this resource: http://www.sibleyguides.com/2006/02/distinguishing-trumpeter-and-tundra-swans/
