Trumpeter Swans near Glenville Pond

Five adults and five first-year young swans
These wonderful birds are all tagged and are part of a private breeding program close to Newmarket, but in King Township.   10 of the huge swans are the most I have ever seen at this location.   It is an inspiring sight.   Native to North America, Cygnus buccinator is the largest swan in the world with a wingspan that may exceed three metres (10 ft.).

Please comment if you wish.
