Black Swan

Cygnus atratus


Worlds only mostly black swan Male bill and neck longer and straighter


Prefer larger and permanent swamps and lakes with emergent and subaquatic vegetation.


I Spotted pair on Blackbutt Dam about a month ago, then 4 chicks arrived. And then dissapeared over 3 days.. Park Ranger said the eels that are in the dam take them. Sadly this M/F swan only one left.

No species ID suggestions
