Description

The Mute Swan (Cygnus olor) is a species of swan, and thus a member of the duck, goose and swan family Anatidae. It is native to much of Europe and Asia, and (as a rare winter visitor) the far north of Africa. It is also an introduced species in North America, Australasia and southern Africa. The name 'mute' derives from it being less vocal than other swan species. Measuring 125 to 170 centimetres (49 to 67 in) in length, this large swan is wholly white in plumage with an orange bill bordered with black. It is recognisable by its pronounced knob atop the bill.

These are wild migratory birds that were recorded at Presquile Provincial Park in Brighton, Ontario. Migratory birds by the tens of thousands stop at this peninsula in Lake Ontario on their way north in the early spring, including Mute and Tundra Swans. Mute swans can be seen in many parks, ponds marshes and wildlife areas throughout North America.
