Swan

Mute Swan 

The Mute Swan is mainly white with black legs and feet.  They tend to live in smaller groups and are very territorial when breeding.  The male swan, known as a cob, frighten enemies with an angry sound and violent wing movements.  The familiar pose with neck curved back and wings half raised, known as busking, is a threat display.
