This is a swan, that we saw while taking a walk around the pond at Tipton Trails. The swan didn’t do a lot besides sit there, and for that I am glad; I do not like birds, although it was very elegant looking. The surrounding area I thought was unusual for a bird of this kind, are limited meadow areas nearby but I wouldn’t think enough for it to have a sustainable life in that park. In my research, I learned that swans are native to Australia and when they mate, it is for life. This type of swan is called a Mute Swan.

Crazy still to see any swan in CA. in an estuary. Fingers crossed it's a native as @tiwane slams on the brakes to my command. Nope, just that introduced...thing. Seemed to be enjoying the Bufflehead flock...

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...
