  1. Did you visit the local Zoo, Jivko? It is a nice swan indeed. Posted one month ago
    1. Not at all. I don't like to go to zoos.
      I visited a good fish restaurant in the vicinity of Sofia - wonderful food, around numerous chickens, goats, pigeons, peacocks, on the shores of a small fish pond. The owner raises some exotic birds, including a black swan.

The Black Swan is a large waterbird, a species of swan, which breeds mainly in the southeast and southwest regions of Australia. The species was hunted to extinction in New Zealand, but later reintroduced. Within Australia they are nomadic, with erratic migration patterns dependent upon climatic conditions. Black Swans are large birds with mostly black plumage and red bills. They are monogamous breeders that share incubation duties and cygnet rearing between the sexes.
