The Black Swan is the only entirely black-coloured swan in the world.
They form isolated pairs or small colonies in shallow wetlands. Birds pair for life, with both adults raising one brood per season. The eggs are laid in an untidy nest made of reeds and grasses. The nest is placed either on a small island or floated in deeper water.

Many thanks for checking out my photos, please feel free to give feedback! My wanderings in nature and observations of birds, particularly raptors, is what gives me great joy and constantly reminds me of the beauty and strength of life. My favourites are raptors, I love their freedom, grace, ruthlessness, pride, adaptability and flexibility and I learn much about parenting, protection and blind faith from them.

    Congratulations on your feature of this favourite bird of mine !
    I especially love to see them with the broad white wing tips
    which are visible with wings raised while gliding on water.

  • Many thanks Trish, they are very beautiful!
