This young mute swan was out sightseeing with his mom at a local park near my home. As you can see by the feathers on her beak, mom had just finished preening herself. The bill of the cygnet is black at this stage but will become a pinkish color and then orange. These huge birds measure 60-inches (152 cm) from beak-tip to tail-tip.
