Black Swans

The black swan (Cygnus atratus) is found in Australia, Tasmania, and New Zealand. Until the discovery of Australia, it was thought that all swans were white. Black swans are not completely black, the white is the ailerons in the wings. Since the late 18th/19th century, black swans have been bred as ornamental birds in Western Europe, especially in Britain. 5)
