178 trumpeter swan

During a working day near the Missouri-Mississippi river confluence, we drove past Riverlands Migratory Bird Sanctuary and saw a small group of swans. Bill shape and color are all-important in swan I.D. Luckily the birds were close enough that even without binoculars I could memorize the bill particulars and confirm the trumpeter at home.
