In North America, we have Canadian geese. No offense to the Canadians or geese, but they're not very pretty.
Over here, they have swans. They're quite pretty. Here are a few examples taken over the last two weeks. (And no, I don't know why the swan has its leg tucked up out of the water and on his/her back like that. But if you know, I'd like to know. Please share.)
