Polish Mute Swans are a color variant of the mute swan. They get their name from being quieter than other swans and from being introduced to England from Poland. The Polish Mute Swan is identified by its pink feet and pure white feathers. They are water birds, spending most of their lives on lakes and rivers. Females are noticeably larger than males. They feed by dunking their heads under water and feeding on aquatic plants, as well as the occasional land plant. Polish Mute Swans mate for life and can live for over twenty-five years in the wild.
