Swans are part of the Anatidae family in which are also included ducks and geese.  The largest of the swan types are the Mute Swan, Trumpeter Swan and the Whooper Swan.  It is difficult to tell the males from the females since their plumage is the same although males are usually bigger.   An adult male swan is called a “cob”; an adult female, a “pen”; and young swans are named “swanlings” or “cygnets”.

Did you know... 

that Mute Swans and Trumpeter Swans look very similar?  One way to tell them apart is from the colour of their bills and how they hold their necks.   Mute swans have curved necks and orange, black-knobbed bills, while Trumpeter swans have straight necks all the time and have black bills.  Mute Swans are more often found in developed areas around humans, while Trumpeters don’t like human disturbance.

Mute Swan

   

The Trumpeters I’ve met and photographed below had grown dangerously accustomed to humans visiting a Provincial Park and came close to park visitors looking for food.  Unfortunately, humans had fed the swans so much bread that one died from lack of nutrition – bread isn’t what a wild swan needs to eat to stay healthy.  

Mute swans got their name from being quieter – honking less - than other types of swans. 

I highly recommend The Trumpeter Swan Society which provides much information and a downloadable Swan and Goose Identification Brochure.

Beautiful Birds

 

 

 

 


"The reason birds can fly and we can't 
is simply because 
they have perfect faith, 
for to have faith 
is to have wings."
