Heaven's Angel, to counter Hell's Angel


Swans are large water birds that are related to geese and ducks. They usually mate for life, though "divorce" does sometimes occur, particularly following nesting failures. Young swans are known as cygnets, from the Latin word for swan, cygnus. An adult male is a cob, from Middle English cobbe (leader of a group); an adult female is a pen.
