The Black Swan

The Kellogg Bird Sanctuary in southeastern lower Michigan provides a safe haven for native birds and water fowl along with a singular black swan. Blacks swans’ normal habitat is throughout most of Australia. The black swan at the Kellogg Bird Sanctuary is believed to be an escapee from a zoo and is cared for year round. The white stripe across the bill of the black swan is a normal marking. The black swan is nearly twice the size of a Canadian goose with a wing span that exceeds 6 feet in adulthood.



The swan was actively feeding and hard to catch in a quiet or dryer moment.
