The Trumpeter Swans overwinter in our area - we find flocks from Birch Bay to Marysville, WA, the biggest flocks are found on Fir Island near Conway, WA. They often feed in the harvested corn fields - muddy and mucky - so when I find them in water or in a green field I always have to stop and take photos.
Flying overhead in a clear blue sky is wonderful too.
The grey/brown ones are immature Trunpeter Swans
They have a 6 foot wingspan and weigh approximately 25 pounds

And away we go!
