Those look like clear Trumpeters to me. I believe the yellow tags come from the Ontario introduction program.

In the Union Springs Mill Pond were two swans with yellow wing tags (K33, A21) as has been reported earlier in the month, and at risk of becoming the boy who cries trumpeter, I think that's what these are: http://m.flickr.com/photos/50094151@N03/sets/72157639067923424/ Have the Union Springs regulars been seeing these, and has anyone reported the tags to figure out where they may have come from? Thanks. Suan P.S. For those keeping track, the conclusion from my last possible trumpeter photos from Stewart Park is a tundra (thanks Lee Ann and Kevin). I failed to mention then that that bird did not look noticeably bigger than the other, FWIW. -- Cayugabirds-L List Info: Welcome and Basics<http://www.northeastbirding.com/CayugabirdsWELCOME> Rules and Information<http://www.northeastbirding.com/CayugabirdsRULES> Subscribe, Configuration and Leave<http://www.northeastbirding.com/CayugabirdsSubscribeConfigurationLeave.htm> Archives: The Mail Archive<http://firstname.lastname@example.org/maillist.html> Surfbirds<http://www.surfbirds.com/birdingmail/Group/Cayugabirds> BirdingOnThe.Net<http://birdingonthe.net/mailinglists/CAYU.html> Please submit your observations to eBird<http://ebird.org/content/ebird/>! -- -- Cayugabirds-L List Info: http://www.NortheastBirding.com/CayugabirdsWELCOME http://www.NortheastBirding.com/CayugabirdsRULES http://www.NortheastBirding.com/CayugabirdsSubscribeConfigurationLeave.htm ARCHIVES: 1) http://email@example.com/maillist.html 2) http://www.surfbirds.com/birdingmail/Group/Cayugabirds 3) http://birdingonthe.net/mailinglists/CAYU.html Please submit your observations to eBird: http://ebird.org/content/ebird/ --
