Northern Pintails and Trumpeter Swans

Yes, I'm still out looking at birds most everyday. Today I saw three Trumpeter Swans on the lake. They've been around for few days, so I hope to get a better look at them soon, since I only saw them from a distance today. They really are big birds. And I'm pretty sure I saw a Northern Pintail last week. It took me a long time to find something that matched what I saw, but the Pintail seems to fit. I can't think of anything else very unusual.

We saw a small flock of swans flying in a "V" formation a couple weeks ago, which I had never seen before. It was cool-even in the air, they look so much bigger than geese!
