The Swan is really an amazing Bird, they can get about 62 inches in length, weigh over 30 pounds and, have a wingspan of nearly 10 feet at 9.8 feet, they also mate for life and, can fly at speeds of up to 50 mph. Swans are known for being very graceful in the air and, in the water, flying in a v formation, when migrating, they also build their nests near water and, will fiercely protect their nests, with both their beaks and, wings, which can do damage. Another interesting note is they can live up to 50 years in captivity or 20 years in the wild and, they eat mostly aquatic plants. Some information verified at Wikipedia, they can also be white or black and, have a very long neck.

I always find swan as a majestic bird just like its cousin peacock. I just love the pure white color, so neat so clean.

I saw your title and immediately thought of that terrible FOX reality show that was on years ago. I prefer your kind of swan.
