Forgive Me- couldn't resist - Black Swan On Nest
I promise to not post any other non-native or non-migratory birds on my site. I only post this because of the fabulous nest. Those aren't twigs along the edge but branches. I would have given anything to have photographed the nest being built.
Date: March 2011
Location: Gladys Porter Zoo
Behavior: Sat on the amazingly large nest while 100's of people passed by. Used its zoo manners.
