What a nice story. Are they MUTE swans, or just called mute swans. I mean...can they honk, and make noise? Glad for both mama and papa. They'll make good parents!!! Noted, TY, Cher

Here is what I found out Gran.....

The Mute Swan (Cygnus olor) is a species of swan, and hence in turn a member of the duck, goose and swan family Anatidae. It is native to much of Europe and Asia, and (as a rare winter visitor) the far north of Africa. It is also an introduced species in North America, Australasia and southern Africa. The name 'mute' derives from its being less vocal than other swan species, though it is not always silent.
