Muddy Swan at Blackbrook, 22/04/12

A swan determined to hide its species by judicious application of mud! It did wash off later so I know the species - anyone fancy a guess?? :D

      Oh no, it has escaped the thread!

      I'm going to throw out a random guess of Jankowski's Swan.
    • Chlidonias
      I too shall throw out a completely random guess of trumpeter swan
    • Ituri
      I can say with surety that it is in the genus Cygnus!
    • Chlidonias
      ...and its not a black swan
    • Ituri
      Yeah, actually I think we can narrow down further to Cygnus buccinator, Cygnus columbianus or less likely Cygnus cygnus.
    • Chlidonias
      why not olor? (And bewickii if we want to be splitty?)
    • Ituri
      Not knobby enough for olor and I'm not in the mood to be splitty.
    • Maguari
      Hee hee, swan debate. Love it!

      Will put you out of your misery when I'm back at home tonight (probably about 10 hours' time!).
    • Ituri
      Well, you know us...we like to guess :D
