Black swan

Black Swan seen today. My hubby went up to it and stroked the back of its neck! I’m surprised he didn’t get pecked!

I heard that these birds were introduced from abroad. Perhaps Australia? They are mostly all black with red beaks, although there are slight amounts of white in places on them. They are slightly smaller in stature than the normal swans we see. Mute or Hooper Swans? I’m not sure if they can interbreed.

I’m sad that I didn’t get a better photo.
