Four days ago (pic posted) this Trumpeter Swan Cygnet was cheering on its nest mate as it led the family out for breakfast. It had some pretty bare looking tiny wings. This morning it looks like it is showing off its wings to its nest mates. They seem to have sprouted the beginnings of some flight feathers. The rate of growth of these birds continues to amaze me.
