To remind the members a TRUMPET SWAN is a species of swan found in North America. The heaviest bird native to North America, it also is on average the largest extant species of waterfowl. It is the American counterpart and a close relative of the Whooper Swan of Eurasia, and even has been considered the same species by some authorities. The Trumpeter Swan is the largest extant species of waterfowl. Adults usually measure 138-165 cm long, though large males can range up to 180 cm or more in total length. The weight of adult birds is typically 7-13.6 kg with an average weight in males of 11.9 kg and 9.4 kg in females. The wingspan ranges from 185 to 250 cm with the wing chord measuring 60-68 cm The largest known male Trumpeter attained a length of 183 cm, a wingspan of 3.1 m and a weight of 17.2 kg.
