Tundra Swan

Today Lori and I spent some time birding in the Courtney area. There were at least 200 Trumpeter Swans scattered across the fields and after scanning and scrutinizing them all we finally found a Tundra Swan (centre). Slightly smaller than the Trumpeter Swan and shows the black facial skin tapering to the eye and most birds show a yellow spot in front of the eye. Tundra Swans show up annually but this is the first for Vancouver Island for me.
