Swans are the largest extant members of the waterfowl family Anatidae, and are among the largest flying birds. The largest living species, including mute swans, trumpeter swans, and whooper swans, can reach lengths of over 1.5 m (59 in) and weigh over 15 kg (33 lb).
Their wingspan can exceed 3.1 meters (10 ft). Compared to the closely related geese, they are much larger and have proportionally larger feet and necks] Adults also have a patch of bare skin between the eyes and bill. The sexes are similar in plumage, but males are generally larger and heavier than females. The largest known species of swan was the extinct Cygnus falconeri, a flightless giant swan known from fossils found on the Mediterranean islands of Malta and Sicily. Its disappearance is believed to have occurred as a result of extreme climatic fluctuations or the arrival of top predators and competitors.
