Trumpeter Swan, Whitby Harbour
Sunday afternoon five Trumpeter Swans flew into Whitby Harbour with great fanfare!

In contrast, Mute Swans - as their name suggests - are very quiet.
I am linking to Saturday Critters HERE.

Nice shots. Winter survival must be tough for these guys.
Hello EG, lovely shots of the swans... It is amazing they can stand the cold water..I guess they are lucky it is not completely frozen..Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Have a happy weekend!
Swans make such lovely refelections... can't believe all that ice EG, so appealing to me right now :)
I'm always fascinated by swans perhaps because they are very rare in Texas. Small numbers of mute swans do exist here but there were introduced to the environment, I believe as a deterrent for Canada geese.
They certainly are beautiful. Having the mallards in the shots just reinforces how much bigger they are.
Some really beautiful images...
Beautiful photos. The ice is pretty too.
makes my butt feel cold just seeing them with all that ice and icy water. they are wonderful
How lucky you are to be able to see these beautiful birds and get such wonderful pictures of them.
Beautiful swans!! Can't believe they're practically sitting on the ice!! Terrific captures as always! Hope you're enjoying the weekend!! Stay warm!

Swans are so gorgeous! They're very elegant and graceful.
Love seeing them midst the ice, EG!
Such beautiful critters.
I really like the picture of the swans swimming amongst the ice.
Oh you lucky...dare I say...duck?!?!...:)JP
Interesting pictures of birds among the pieces of ice on the water. Regards.
First of all, I like your shots.
Second, can you tell me which swan the ones in my Time Stand Still photo are...I know they are NOT mute, but I have never known if the others we see here are Trumpeter or Tundra swans. I suppose they are Tundra swans after looking at their range at All About Birds.
Swans are so lovely...I wish they were on our lake.
Such majestic waterfowl!
They are terribly cool, aren't they. GRIN, 'scuse the pun!
Beautiful photos! Very cold also...
