Cisne- Swans in Love. When I was little, to me, swans were the most beautiful creatures on earth. I was always heartened by the 'Ugly Duckling' story and hoped I'd turn into a swan someday. Never happened!
Trumpeter Swan (Cygnus buccinator), the largest native water fowl of North America. Males, called cobs, can weigh up to 35 lbs and have a wing span of as much as 7 ft. Females are slightly smaller and called pens. Juveniles are cygnets.
