Black Swan

The Black Swan is endemic to Australia and bond for life.

They feed on vegetation consisting mostly of algae and weeds, they are able to reach 1 meter deep with their long necks.

They raise one brood per year and eggs are laid on nests made of reeds and grasses, the chicks are able to swim the moment they are born.

We saw them in Centennial Park in Sydney, what a treat, they are such beautiful creatures.
