I’m including more information on swan I observed just before dusk. As many of you know, Swan ID at Batiquitos is complicated as Trumpeter Swans introduced to Lake San Marcos are known to occasionally visit the Lagoon. Furthermore a Tundra Swan was found last year at this time. So both are known to visit the location. I was able to use my improving digi-scoping methods to get a reasonable highly magnified image despite the distance and conditions. The picture and some observation notes are in the following ebird report. I’m interested in any comments and tips regarding ID. https://ebird.org/checklist/S98163329Tito GonzalezCarlsbad, CA
