Beautiful that's certainly a bird I have never seen before. It looks like a cross between a black and a white swan. Nice capture.

Great shot and for 'Westoz' the birds are black-necked swans which are native to South America.

Thanks all,
Sylvan Heights is a neat facility dedicated primarily to waterfowl if you're heading north or south off US Interstate 95 through North Carolina.
