Which zoo was this, please, Lester? It is such a shame that Birdland in Bourton-on-the-Water closed, as they had both tropical and temperate walk-in aviaries.

This was Marwell Hampshire.

Trumpeter swan juvenile. He is a tough customer, swimming in icy water here in Calgary in January. Taken with my new 77D. Got tired of waiting for the 7D3. The 77D lacks some of my 7D2's bells and whistles but has a better sensor. And it weighs half a pound less.

Wow, great shot !
But this is also a great picture to use to show people the difference between a Cooper’s Hawk and a Sharp-shinned. You can really see the “squared-off” outer tail feathers, as opposed to the shorter outer tail feathers on the Coopers (giving it a more rounded appearance).
