Back in August of 1993 there was a Trumpeter Swan that spent a few days in a pond near the Danbury Mall. I saw it on August 21. It was conveniently with a couple of Mute Swans, so the size difference was obvious. As Frank described, too, the other differences were noticeable as well, but the bird was considerably larger than the Mute Swans. 

It had a neck tag from the previously mentioned Ontario breed and release program.

P.S. Frank, lovely photos. I hope I get to see the birds.
