A Tundra Swan, some Mallard Drakes, Northern Mockingbird and a Turkey Vulture

The Tundra Swan is twice the size of a Canadian Goose. He was a loner, didn't seem to be bothered to much by my presence. Three Mallards lined up for a photo. A Northern Mockingbird finding insects in the pines. A Turkey Vulture kept circling above me and gave me a few photo ops.
