We were skiing in Harriman State Park in Idaho on a cold, overcast evening in December and observed a pair of Trumpeter Swans transitioning between the open and frozen water surface.   The temperature was well below freezing;  By late afternoon, the ambient light was low and blue.  It was a magical experience.  

Trumpeter Swans are magnificent and large birds.  In fact they are our biggest native waterfowl in North America, stretching to six (6) feet in length and weighing more than 25 pounds.  Similar to a large jet airplane, these stunning white birds requires a lengthy takeoff - nearly a 100-yard runway. Once-endangered, this elegant species is graceful in the water.
