Trumpeter Swan

Cygnus buccinator


large swan (60 inches) with no yellow on it face. Call is a single or double honk, like an old car horn.


Winters in the Fraser Valley where I live but only in quiet fields or marshes where there is little disturbance. Breeds in some parts of northern BC.

I see, beautiful birds.

No, pure white, but hard to get the exposure just right. Really cold, grey day and so not enough light for true colour.

Are they a little pink color?
