  3. Beautiful black swans, perfectly posed. Are these wild or permanent residents? I have never seen a wild swan. Maybe they avoid Oklahoma.

  4. @Tulsa Gentleman These swans are free to come and go as they please, and are ‘wild’. My bird book says that “Black Swans in New Zealand are moderately sedentary”, so I guess they might not travel too far. Swans flying ‘long distance’ are a rare sight for me, but it has happened. Large numbers of swans – as in thousands of birds – are found at Farewell Spit (top of South Island).
