Thank you for all the feedback on my Swan photos. And, yes, the swans with the yellow teardrop under their eyes are Tundra Swans - not Trumpeter.

DBB,

Tj was correct, these are Tundra swans. Tundra swans are a mainstay here in Minnesota, just like the Trumpeters, and the juveniles that are pictured are probably trumpeters, but the yellow is the marking of the Tundra swan.

Linda, no offense to you in your ID (or to you DBB). Most people cannot tell the differenc between them unless they are sitting side by side. I myself have been fooled before as well, but the ones with theyellow are definitely Tundras (or whistling swans as they are often called as well).

Tom - no offense taken - I acknowledged the ones with the yellow teardrop under the eye were Tundra Swans in my Feb. 23rd post to this thread. I didn't notice it until "tjk" pointed it out but he was absolutely right. I would always want people to correct me if I misidentified a bird - that's how I learn :-)
