Question: What kind of baby waterfowl are sheltering under mom’s feathers?

The given options are as follows:

  • Snow goose
  • American Pekin duck
  • Mute swan

The correct answer is: Mute swan

Fact: These mute swan cygnets (young swans) are characterized by their dark bills and gray down. As they grow, their bills will turn orange and their feathers will fade to white. As adults, they’ll weigh up to 30 pounds—the second-largest waterfowl species, just behind the trumpeter swan.
