Trumpeter Swan eyes Mute Swans

Photo by BarrytheBirder
I took this photo on November 27 on the King/Caledon Townline, south of Highway 9.   The swan on the left, with a yellow tag on its left wing is a Trumpeter Swan, while the object of its attention is a pair of Mute Swans.   The Trumpeter is probably a migrant while the Mute Swans are likely residents of this pond.   I've rarely seen swans of different types associating with each other, but this trio seemed rather chummy and lent a pleasant vista to a cold, late November day.
