Cygnus melancoryphus, 'Black-necked Swan'. Despite being the smallest in the Cygnus swan genus, it is the largest native waterfowl in South America. Found in both salt water and freshwater around southern South America.

Thinking of travelling again after everything settles down? The first expedition I am booked to work on after the virus is Micronesia, New Guinea & Indonesia in 2021 with Silversea.
