Thank you for the correct ID of these swans Eileen, very much appreciated. The differences between the Tundra Swan and the Trumpeter Swan can be found here. The Tundra swan has a little yellow on their beak whereas the Trumpeter does not.
I am starting off with more photos from my sister-in-law today, starting off with the Tundra Swan.
I am not sure if I am correct in my ID here. At first I thought they might have been a Redhead, but then I saw the Canvasback which is similar. If you know for sure I would be grateful for the correction.
In this photo they are joined by the American Coot.
I wondered if the above bird was a female Ruddy Duck, with a closer look below.
This was the closest I came to a possible ID here, and please let me know if you think I am incorrect.
Added note: please read Eileen's comment about these ducks. Thanks again Eileen!
One of my favorite photos my sister-in-law took, a Hooded Merganser.
A beautiful photo of a Snow Goose in flight, and several more...
and a whole lot more.An American Coot.
Two photos of the same bird, one a little closer. You will recognize the Great Blue Heron.
I have a number of other photos to share but will leave you with these for now. With thanks again to my sister-in-law who lets me share them you.
