 From the new book, "Peterson Reference Guide to Seawatching"
by Ken Behrens & Cameron Cox:

- "Trumpeter has a longer neck, hunched back, broader and blunter wings
with obvious primary "fingers", and BULGING BELLY compared with Tundra
Swans."
- "Trumpeter's head and bill look proportionate: both are large. Tundra has
a large head , but it's bill seems disproportionately small."
- Trumpeter's often root in the mud, resulting in a dirty bill."

GOOD book to have to help ID various "inland" waterfowl, gulls, terns, etc
in flight as well.
