Go to Ecard Page

Mute swans take 4 years to mature into breeding adults and take on their full white plumage. For the first year they stay near to their parents but afterwards gather with other juveniles to form non breeding groups. Juveniles are recognised by the brown and white mingled plumage and drab pink/grey beaks.
