Trumpeter Swans for Christmas

We are blessed to see these beauties at least once a week. I consider it a wonderful Christmas gift :)
They had moved a bit, so we were able to get a little bit closer. Please see this recent post for lots of info on Trumpeter Swans!

I’ll close with this video. I apologize for the shakiness.. super zoom is great but makes for a little instability.

Wonderful looking birds - our swans are black with aright red beak! Rather different to these.
