Swan

I took too many pictures but here are a few decent ones. It appears to think it’s a goose. It was alone when I got there and immediately went to join the geese when they flew in. The ice seems to be skimming over as we watched. Folks who met a state employee there ahead of us understood him to say he saw the swan fly, so it’s apparently not trapped there.

    Reblogged this on Otter Creek Audubon Society and commented:
    A Trumpeter Swan has been seen for the past few days in Brandon on Rt. 73 about a mile west of the village in a wetland near a railroad overpass. If accepted by the Vermont Bird Records Committee, this would be only the second time the species was recorded in Vermont. The first time was at Tri-Town Water District Plant on Lake Champlain in Addison on May 26, 2014. There are efforts to reintroduce this species in Ontario, so sightings of these birds may become more common in the future.
