The Mute Swan is a large species of swan native to much of Europe and Asia. They are recognizable with totally white plumage and a bright orange bill bordered in black with a black knob on top.
While not completely silent, Mute Swans are typically less vocal than other swan species, giving them their common name.
Although native to the Old World, introduced populations of Mute Swans exist elsewhere in the world, including Australia and the United States.
