swans near a lake. The black swan is a beautiful bird as you can
see it on the picture. There is in the world seven swan species.
It is a large water bird that is mostly found in Australia and
New Zealand. But in New Zealand it has been reintroduced just
recently. Before the Maoris took possession of New Zealand there
was a sub species of swan living in this country which has been
hunted and now is an extinct species. The black swan has a black
plumage; it has a length of 130cm and can weigh up to nine kgs.
This magnificent bird has a long neck and it is curved. The
cygnets have a light grey plumage. Usually when you talk about
swan you always think that a swan is white. The Black Swan as
other swan species is a monogamous bird, which means they often
stay in couple for most of the time the whole life. In Western
Australia, the black swan is under the protection of the
Wildlife Act 1974 and the Australian National Parks, it is also
the emblem of this of Australia.
