Photos from: Swans seen on Ruskin pond

Orlyn Renz, Ruskin, snapped this photograph of trumpeter swans swimming on a pond owned by Mark Eggers. Trumpeter swans are a rare sight in this area. They are the largest of the water fowl birds in North America, with a wing span which can measure up to nearly 80 inches. The birds are entirely white with black bills and legs. They eat aquatic vegetation and forage in agriculture fields. Immature birds are grayish brown.
