    The rare Bewick’s Swan was recently spotted near Salmon, Idaho. This Eurasian subspecies of the Tundra Swan is often mistaken for the Whooper Swan. Only a trained eye might be able to tell the difference. The smaller Bewick’s Swan sports a small yellow dot on its black beak, while the Whooper Swan has a larger yellow wedge on its beak. Records show that these birds are occasionally spotted during their spring migration in North America (Alaska, Oregon, Saskatchewan and recently in Idaho). What a rare opportunity to see this bird in the wild!
