Trumpeter Swan

Cygnus buccinator

There are two Pribilof records of this species, an early northbound individual during late April in the winter season and a hypothetical record during the spring in early May. This is one of the earliest migrants to return to Alaska each spring and as such it is likely to be a very early migrant when they do arrive in the Pribilofs, likely prior to regular coverage each spring in May.
