Spectacular shot, Sonja. We do see them in our area but they are introduced,

If you are quite strict, Mute Swans are introuced in most of europe too, but as populations are definately sustainable without much human help, and the introduction in many places as parc fowl happened very long before Columbus' times. In germany they are huntable game in most places but not where I live as the hunting season falls together with the wintering season of strictly protected Whooper Swans.
