      I know this might be hard to believe but as I walked out to work tonight,
      going overhead was the classic call of a Trumpeter Swan in with a few Tundra
      Swans. I watched the flock of 11 birds fly dircetly over my house (off of U
      Street in Sacramento) and to the west.

      Beyond the fact that it is very rare, I would assume that this is also very
      early?

        Hi,
        I was waiting for someone else who was on the boat yesterday to say something: in this flock of appr. 100 Tundra Swans there was this one adult swan that was a big monster. We did not succeed in photographing it, but this adult bird appeared to be and several others to be an adult Trumpeter. That's what I am putting in my birding diary. If more details needed, please call my cell (I am at work tonight (Saturday).

          Tom and others,
          Myself and several other birders such as Joan Humphrey, Rob Fowler, Kerry
          Ross, and Dan Singer paid close attention to this swan. None of us saw any
          field mark that supported Trumpeter Swan. The bill shape to me supported Tundra
          Swan. The looks were distant. The only thing that caught our attention was
          that it seemed larger than the Tundras around it. Nothing makes me believe it
          or any swans around it were anything other than Tundra Swans.
