Pinion – In the Eastern United States most Swan Breeders will Pinion
Female Swans on the Right Wing and the Males Swans on the Left Wing.

A Sad but Necessary Procedure.

The Best and Safest Time to Pinion is within
23-72 Hours Up to 14 – 20 Days Old.

Clipped to Keep Grounded.  5-7 Primary Flight Feathers are Cut Short Annually.
                                  – This Keeps the Swan off Balance when they try to Fly.
Swan Clipped******************************************

Knob –  The Black Ball Shaped Structure just above the Beak
and between the Eyes of Mute Swans.Male Mute Swan Knob
It is Quite Large in most Healthy Males…  Larger during Mating Season.

The Female’s Knob is usually a Bit Smaller.
The Female’s Knob will also Increase in Size during Mating Season.

The Knob is NOT a Good Way to Determine the Gender of Mute Swans.

– The Knob will Shrink if a Swan is Underweight.

known as the Rhamphotheca.

In most Species Two Holes known as Nares Lead to the Respiratory System.

Mute Swan Beak Lore Nail Nail  The Hard Black Tip on a Swan’s Beak is called the “Nail.”  
It is Very Hard like Horn.

The Nail is used to dig into Roots and Tough Fiber Parts of Plants.

Lore – The Area on the Head between the Eye and the Base
of the Upper Part of the Beak.   

Nasal Structures 
A Nostril (or Naris, pl. Nares)
is One of the Two Channels of the Nose,
from the Point where they Bifurcate to the External Opening.Mute Swan Nares

In Birds they contain Branched Bones or Cartilages called Turbinates, 
whose Function is to Warm Air on Inhalation and Remove Moisture on Exhalation.

Nether Chap – Lower Mandible of the Beak.

Swan Lamellae

Lamellae – The Serrated Edge along the Bill/Beak is called the Lamellae.
This Aids Straining Water as the Swans Eat Watery Foods.

Mute Swan Plumage

Plumage – The Feathers

A Mute Swan has over 25,000 Feathers to be Replaced Annually.Mute Swan Plumage

They Moult every Year during the Summer Months.

The Pens Moult during late June and the Cobs Moult during July.

For a Short Time the Swans will look a bit “Shabby.”
During this time they are Unable to Fly.

It takes about Four – Five Weeks for all the New Feathers to Grow-In
and become Firm Enough for Flight.

The New Feathers are “Blood Feathers” and can Bleed PROFUSELY
if Broken or Cut.     

Swan Moulting

Molt – Moult  For Swans:  Moulting is the Periodic Replacement of their Plumage
by Shedding Old, Worn Feathers as New Ones Grow-In.

The Stage after the Large Wing Feathers have Fallen Out.
The Swans look “Shaggy” when they hold their Wings in Display.

Swan Blood Feathers

Blood Feathers – The Stage of New Growth of the Larger Feathers
when there are Blood Vessels in the Feather Shaft.

If Broken or Cut these Feathers WILL BLEED.

Swan Blood Feathers******Swan Blood Feathers

Nictitating Membrane – A Transparent or Translucent Third Eyelid Present
in some Animals and Birds that can be Drawn Across the Eye for Protection
and to Moisten the Eye while also Allowing Visibility.
Nictitating Membrane Mute Swan

In Swans, the Nictitating Membrane Closes Horizontally (side to side)
Across the Eye instead of Up and Down like a Normal Eye Lid.

The Nictitating Membrane also Protect the Swan’s Eyes while they are in Flight.
These Translucent Eye Lids Protect a Swan’s Eyes while they are Looking under Water.

Dipping – Waterfowl Grazing on Under Water Plants..

Be Careful..  This may Lead to the Swan Flying at you. Move to a Safe Place.

“Hormone Hell” – As Mating and Nesting Season Approach,
the Male Swans become very Territorial and Aggressive.Hormone Hell

Their Increasing Reproductive Hormones DRIVE them to Protect their Pond,
Female and Nest Area.  They will Chase and Defend.

Swan Cobs are “Hormones with Wings.”

This is their Job.     Try to Give him SPACE and Understanding.

This Gland is found between the Back and the Tail under a Flap of Feathers.  

The Waxy Secretion is Released to the Surface of the Skin through a
Grease Nipple-like Nub.Swan Preening Gland

The Swan Transfers this Oil to its Feathers by Rubbing its Head against
the Oil Nub and then Rubbing the Oil all over their Body.
