Mute Swan (Cygnus olor)

>> Feb 5, 2011

These elegant birds live in Swan Lake area, inside Nusantara Flower Park (Cipanas, West Java, Indonesia). When we reached this small lake, we saw this couple. Do you know that they are monogamous? Male and female swans share the care of their nest, and once they have cygnets (baby swans); they will also share to look for food. So sweet!

The name 'mute' derives from it being less vocal than other swan species. Measuring 125 to 170 centimeters in length, this large swan is completely white in plumage with an orange bill bordered with black. It is recognizable by its marked knob atop the bill.

Compared to the other Northern white swans, the Mute Swan can simply be notable by its curved neck and orange, black-knobbed bill. Unlike most other Northern swan species (who usually live in only wetlands without regular human interfering), the Mute Swan has, in some parts of the world, become habituated and nearly fearless towards humans. Such swans are often seen at close range in urban areas with bodies of water.
