Northam – Swans

image

We saw these White Swans on the Avon River in Northam last weekend. Of course, the native swans in Australia are Black Swans, so these white ones are quite a novelty – for Australians, anyway. These ones were introduced to Northam in the early 20th century, and are the only surviving viable colony of White Swans in Australia.
