Swan and Bird of Prey


Recommended Posts

Yesterday, SW PA, unfortunately both shots were "distant" and the swan was photographed "through brush" so it is a bit blurry. 

1. Is this a Trumpeter Swan? Lately at our park there has been one sighted and this one was off by its lonesome with some ducks. I did not see any flocks of Tundra Swans around, and I am aware of the sightings of a lone Trumpeter Swan as of late (saw it elsewhere), but when the lake froze over a lot of birds got displaced from their usual spots. People have been seeing a Trumpeter on and off for months, so I was trying to see if this was it. Best photo, others had the bird diving upside down and you could only see the feet.

2. What type of bird of prey? If possible, I know it is pretty bad. Only shot.
