While on a road trip I went to Columbia White Tail refuge near Cathlamet.
I found 28 swans feeding/loafing in the wetlands adjacent to the
headquarters maintenance area. There were 14 Tundra adults and 14
Trumpeters, 1 a juvenile. Really nice to see them down there.
One Tundra was very large, sitting next to a Trumpeter. The Tundra had
no yellow on the lore, and no red line on the mandible. It was really clear
it was a Tundra with all the field characteristics: side bill line, U shape
forehead feathers, round head. But a huge bird and about the same size as
the obvious Trumpeter sitting next to it.
Has anyone seen swans in this general area this year or before.
