Trumpeter

When I photographed the Muscovy Duck featured a week or so ago I had actually stopped at this part of Esquimalt Lagoon to photograph one of my favourite residents there, a Trumpeter Swan. He's been living there for at least several years now and seems quite content to mingle with the seagulls and Mute Swans. The latter are an introduced species that have naturalized themselves at Esquimalt Lagoon but the Trumpeter is a native North American bird, our largest.

They can be very photogenic, and I'm sure they know that!
