Baby Birdorable: Black Swan

March 21st, 2012 in Baby Birds, Swans 3 comments

If you think our Birdorable birds are cute as adults, what about when they are babies? Below are some baby photos (shared via Flickr / Creative Commons) of the Black Swan. Black Swans pair for life. During breeding, both adults care for the nest. The typical clutch size is between 4 and 8 eggs; incubation takes around 38 days. Baby swans are called cygnets; the cygnets stay with their parents for about 9 months after hatching.
