Black Swans originated in Australia

A Black Swan (Cygnus atratus) was seen recently on one of the beaches of Kolobrzeg, in northern Poland, on the coast of the Baltic Sea.   Black Swans are large birds with mostly black plumage and red bills.   They are very rarely seen in Poland and this part of Europe.   These dramatic-looking waterbirds originated in Australia, were moved to New Zealand and then many other countries of the world, where many feral populations exist today.
