Swans from Barrow

In just a couple days I've been to the airport twice to pick up swans that were flown in from Barrow. After examination they were found to have very minor injuries, nothing to prevent them from migrating south.

Both being very young, probably this years bird, it's hard to determine what type of swan these are. The possibilities are Tundra and Trumpeter Sans.

What do you think?

One day soon I'm going to get out my field guide and puzzle out the ID for these birds! I keep checking back to see if someone else has.
