Mates For Life
Photograph - Color Photograph
Photographed in early spring between Cleveland and Akron, Ohio these swans will mate for life. But there are times when a swan will take a new mate. A swan will take a new mate if its partner gets lost or dies. Swans choose mates when they are 2 to 3 years old. A swan begins its courtship by displaying, or showing off, to another swan. Swans display while facing each other. They dip and turn their heads. Swans may also �kiss� bills. When swans kiss, their necks form a heart shape.
