Question:
I have a question about swans. I am an English children's author currently living in Brazil. I am currently writing a book for young children about swans and was interested in the information your site carries. My question is this: "If a swan's nest were to be submerged by floodwaters would the parent swans be able to move the eggs to a different location?"


Replies:
No, how would they carry them?
