Whooper swan (cygnus cygnus)


This bird is very rare, being found only near the Aleutian Islands of Alaska. It is all white and closely related to the Trumpeter swan, but Whoopers have a distinguishing patch of yellow on the base of their otherwise black bill. They live in the marshes and lakes of the area and move to the coast in the winter. They grow to just over five feet in length.
