The Trumpeter Swan, Cygnus buccinator, is the largest native North American bird, if measured in terms of weight and length, and is (on average) the largest living waterfowl species on earth. These birds have white plumage with a long neck, a black bill subtly marked with salmon-pink along the mouthline, and short black legs. The cygnets (juveniles) are grey in appearance, becoming white after the first year. Their breeding habitat is large shallow ponds and wide slow rivers in northwestern and central North America, with the largest numbers of breeding pairs found in Alaska. Natural populations of these swans migrate to and from the Pacific coast and portions of the United States, flying in V-shaped flocks. Released populations are mostly non-migratory.

    Hey Larry, GREAT portrait of the Trumpeter. The Trumpeters are currently sojourning in parts of Ontario now and hope to head out to ‘feed them to my cameras’ before they continue their northern migration.

  • Thanks for the fav, and your comments Ron, they are certainly a pretty bird indeed
