Fun Facts for Kids
- The meaning of the Black swan's scientific name is a swan attired in black, this referring to its almost entirely black plumage.
- A big group of Black swans on the ground is called a bank, but when in flight the group is called a wedge.
- The Black swan swims with only one leg, tucking up the other above its tail. This may be because the swan can change direction more easily when swimming if it needs to escape from a predator or move quickly to get to the food.
- A Black swan has the longest neck, relative to its size of all swan species.
- A Black swan is the official bird of Western Australia and is featured on the flag of this state and in its coat of arms.
- Before European explorers reached Australia, it was thought that only white swans existed. Antounie Caen, a Dutch mariner, was the first European to see the incredible sight of Australian Black swans in 1636 in Shark Bay.
Black swans are natives of Australia, including Tasmania, and mainly occur in Australia's south-eastern and south-western wetlands. These birds were once thought to be sedentary, but are now known to be highly nomadic. There is no set migratory pattern, but rather opportunistic responses to either rainfall or drought. Black swans inhabit rivers, lakes, and swampland in water that is fresh, salt, or brackish. They prefer habitats that have aquatic vegetation but sometimes live in terrestrial areas like flooded fields or dry pastures when food is scarce.
