New mute swan parents were spotted relishing a springtime swim with their nine newborns at Beilonghu Wetland Park in Zhengzhou City, central China's Henan Province.

The mute swan is an exotic bird species with a pronounced knob atop the beak. They live mainly in open lakes, ponds, reservoirs, bays, swamps and slow-flowing rivers.
