Tundra Swan

On rare occasion, I have seen tundra swans pass over while filming at the river.  They feed in shallows by tipping up like dabbling ducks, eating aquatic vegetation.  They will also feed in grain fields like geese.  They are on my future "shot list" for pictures of their graceful landings and take-offs.  They are one of the waterfowl that have to run along the surface to become airborne.
