Trumpeter Swans a bit more in the foreground in this recording but the Tundra's really make a racket towards the end. A large mixed flock (200+) of Trumpeter and Tundra swans feeding in a flooded field. Lots of territorial bickering and display dancing where 3 or 4 birds would form a circle bob their heads up and down and then raise up and all flap their wings at once.
