No Bob, this is a juvenile Trumpeter Swan and the duck is a Wigeon.

My Sibley guide indicates that the adult Trumpeter never has color other than black in the lores. Is this possibly Tundra with a female Long-tailed Duck? I had hit the books to try to ID the duck. Great shot, Tom.

Are you playing "Simon Says" with them! How else could they be doing this at the same time ....!! A great, funny shot. Well done.

Putting on the air brakes. Super shot Tom. What is it doing gunning for the smaller duck??

Looks like the swan is giving birth to live young. :o)
Is that a duck?

Nice action, Tom. It looks like he is skidding to a stop before he goes off the runway (ice).
