Full Answer

A swan builds its nest on land and it is made from twigs, sticks and leaves. Once the cygnets are born, they are introduced in to the water within 2 days. The cygnets stay very close to their mother when they are young. The mother swan keeps them warm and protects the cygnets from any predators. The cygnets stay with their parents for approximately 6 months before they leave. If the parents believe that it is time for the cygnets to leave, they will chase them off.
