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

@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).

Between those brackets must be all the beauty of this world, that you are so good at catching and sharing… Nice work.

where can you get a better photo than this?
I must drop by Western Spring after work to see if the babies are hatched.
