A collared trumpeter swan (Cygnus buccinator) sits on a small pond near Lincoln, Montana. The swan is part of an effort to re-establish the bird in the Blackfoot valley, where it was hunted to extinction in the quest for feathers for ladies' hats. Trumpeter swans are the heaviest living bird native to North America and have a wingspan that can exceed 10 feet.
