Trumpeter Swan?

The bill and forehead shape kind of look like Trumpeter, but take that with about one pound of salt from someone who hasn't seen either species.

@Hasan tends to be pretty good at this kind of thing, though I'm not sure if the pictures are good enough.

I thought they looked like Trumpeter to me. But yeah.........I am just hoping it can be identified because I need both Trumpeter and Tundra for the year list. I am running out of time on Tundra too

I'm with Trumpeter for these birds. Don't worry about getting Trumpeters for year though if there's any question on the identification of these birds, as they breed in a couple places around the state, but yeah Tundra is more of a winter/early spring migrant.

I'm not worried about trumpeter. I think I'll get that. Is is more Tundra that will be harder.

So yes on Trumpeter? I can put it on my year list.

Are you comfortable with your id? After all it's your list and you are the only one that needs to approve it. I don't keep ANY lists but if I did, I'd be hesitant to list birds that I wasn't sure about, especially if I still wasn't sure after asking for help with the ID. That's just my spin on a list that I don't keep though, this is your list and you have to decide what goes on it.
