Lake Eola also has several Whooper Swans. These swans are native to Europe, but here they are in Orlando, FL. They resemble Trumpeter and Tundra Swans to me, but with much more yellow on the bill. These birds can way over 25 pounds, making them one of the world's heaviest flying birds.
So if we see this Swan at the Lake in Florida, can we count it for ABA NA list? It is a Code 3 bird, lifer for many of usReplyDelete
I believe that it's an exotic that does not count. Too bad, though, right?ReplyDelete
