Frosty Morning - Whistling Swans By Owen Gromme

By Owen Gromme

Frosty Morning - Whistling Swans by Owen Gromme

Three whistling swans are coming in for a landing in this great swan artwork for sale. Tundra Swans have high pitched honking calls and sound similar to a black goose (Branta). They are particularly vocal when foraging in flocks on their wintering grounds; any birds arriving or leaving will elicit a bout of loud excited calling from its fellows. Contrary to its common name, the ground calls of the Whistling Swan are not a whistle and neither notably different from that of Bewick's Swan. The flight call of the latter is a low and soft ringing bark, bow-wow...; the Whistling Swan gives a markedly high pitched three syllable bark like wow-wow-wow in flight. By contrast, the Whooper and Trumpeter Swans' names accurately describe their calls a deep hooting and a higher-pitched French horn-like honk, respectively. Flying birds of these species are shorter-necked and have a quicker wing beat than their relatives, but they are often impossible to tell apart except by their calls.
