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.
Great capture of this pair...well done Tom.
What a great catch Tom!

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

The feet tell it all Tom, terrific shot....
Nice action, Tom. It looks like he is skidding to a stop before he goes off the runway (ice).
