Tundra Swan at Walden Ponds

View of Indian Peaks from Walden Ponds
One Thursday morning on the way to volunteering in Boulder, I stopped at Walden Ponds to see the Tundra Swan reported on eBird. It was still there, but I had to come back in the afternoon to see it at close enough range to positively ID.

Along with the swan were large numbers of other waterfowl including Ring-necked Ducks, Gadwalls, Coots, Redheads, Common Goldeneyes and a lone Bufflehead. I learned the sound of the American Wigeon that day - I was surrounded by their amusing whistle, not unlike a noisy chorus of doggie squeak toys.
