Swan Trivia.

SwanSwimmingAtSunrise_Med.gif

A group of Swans is called a bevy or a wedge in flight.

Swans have their permanent partner for life. They are monogamous which means that they only mate with the same swan for the rest of their life. Very rarely a divorce may happen where two break off their bondage and mate with others.

Mute swans are the only specie that most people are familiar of. This is the typical appearance described in most books especially in fairytales.

A male is called a cob. An adult male is the only bird that has a penis.

A cob acts responsibly for his cygnets (baby swans) and for his partner this make them distinguishable from other birds. He protects his family by making a blow using his knucklebone.

A female is called a pen and looks the same as the cobs and the only trait that distinguishes them is their size; pens are relatively smaller than cobs.

Swans can live up to 20 years but their average lifespan nowadays is only around 7 years. The reason behind this is because of the poor quality of food and water given to them.

Swans feed on vegetation, particularly on aquatic plants. Sometimes, they also eat insects and small aquatic animals.
