Trumpeter Swan

Trumpeter Swans are our biggest native waterfowl, stretching to 6 feet in length and weighing more than 25 pounds - almost twice as massive as a Tundra Swan. Getting airborne requires a lumbering takeoff along a 100-yard runway.

A trumpeter Swan was located near Hansonville, VA (Russell County) on February 17th. Due to recent flooding a farm field provided a place for the swan.
