ABSTRACT
Swan, a migratory water bird related to ducks and geese. Larger than the goose, the swan may attain a length of five feet (1.5 m) or more. Its long, graceful, arched neck allows it to dip into the water and gather the aquatic plants and seeds that form the major part of its diet. The male swan, called a cob, is larger than the female, or pen. The young, called cygnets, have bluish-gray or brownish feathers. With the exception of the black-necked swan and the black swan, the plumage of adults is white.
