Fairer Cousin of the Thunderbird Spotted by MOA

I saw a flock of migrating Trumpeter swans in May right over the Ceder Ave Bridge in the Minnesota River Wildlife Preserve by Mall of America (MOA). It was surreal, they are the largest birds in North America. They easily looked twice the size of Canadian Geese. There were about 10 of them flying in formation in the morning sun with their huge white wings beating in unison. I heard some faint "honking" from the flock as I rolled down my car window. Awesome. They were going northwest....

They are just shy of Teradactyl proportions if you ask me!
