It’s special to capture images of birds in our production region, in the pure heart of Australia.
It’s even more special when you capture black swans nesting on your doorstep.
#Didyouknow black swans are largely monogamous, pairing for life. They are the only entirely black coloured swan in the world. They are also the state bird and state emblem for Western Australia.
‘Black Swans form isolated pairs or small colonies in shallow wetlands. They pair for life, with both adults raising one brood per season. Eggs are laid in an untidy nest made of reeds and grasses. The nest is placed either on a small island or floated in deeper water. The chicks (cygnets) are covered in grey down and are able to swim and feed themselves as soon as they hatch.’ Reference https://australian.museum/learn/animals/birds/black-swan/
