Bewick's Swan at Par beach pool compared to the Stithians birds
Adult bewick's Swan at Par beach pool
Every Bewick's Swan has a different bill pattern, similar to a human finger print.
These three adults (above) and fourth adult below, are part of the original flock of eight at Stithians Res. A close look at the bill pattern shows the Par bird to be a different individual. There is a unique black mark on the Par bird's bill not shown in any of the adults above.
