    So I know their not native to the USA... So my question is would they nest in spring as the Mute swan would?

    I believe they would nest in the spring like other swans because they follow the photoperiod, so when the days get longer then they will start nesting. : )

    BREKEN, would be nice to see your location beneath your Avatar (picture on left) before trying to answer your question. Most animals breed depending on geographical area.

    I have a pair of Black Aussie swans that are breeding now. SEE!! you can see where I'm at. Please add your location. [​IMG]
